If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? highlights the ideas of projection and perception as narratives in current venues for information, such as the Internet and social media. The artist inserts this discourse within the space of painting versus collage, comparing the fabricated identity (as in the careful creation-process of painting) to what is perceived of identity (to which collage presents as an anti-thesis).
While the creation of identity-as-narrative stipulates the question of truth, Ignacio instead emphasizes the validity of truth among what are, relatively, personal truths. That such a state persists despite the questionable nature of projection and perception, all narratives are still narratives and ultimately, the validity lies in the audience and even within the very act of projection as a way of validation.
