"Selves" portrays two selves: the true self and the perceived self. The true self, portrayed through a wonderful creature wrapped in a handmade quilt and surrounded by items of comfort, upheaves itself and its surroundings to make room for the perceived self, a meticulously crafted being whose mask is made of ping pong balls. The true self is subservient to the perceived self, but the perceived self is ultimately subservient to the viewer, who prompts the switching of selves through a simple action: bow, high five, handshake, and more, after ringing a doorbell.
