There is a future in the unfinished.


If I tell you Unfinished what’s the first thing that comes to your mind?

I think of an unfinished outside my profession, which is part of a much larger project and which is the real unfinished of my life: the project of having a child, of having my own family.

Unfinished what colour/shape is it?

Green, because green has so many facets and they are all beautiful, but you never know which one is complete the definitive one. As a form, I would say two parallel lines.

Is there something you have left undone in your life?

Unfinished for me is something that hasn’t even begun, like my project to dedicate myself to MRI scanning. For this I had done a Master, then I have never managed to enter our MRI laboratory. I submitted various proposals, but the project was not accepted, perhaps also because I did not insist enough, perhaps because I was in the wrong place or asking at the wrong time.

What emotions do you associate with the unfinished?

A feeling of failure, a sense of responsibility and frustration.

Something unfinished that you would like finished?

At the moment nothing, the MRI thing doesn’t interest me anymore, it’s a closed thing. The unfinished that concerns having my own family, I have quite elaborated it. From a professional point of view, I feel the things I had in mind to do are completed. Completeness was given to me by the Covid emergency because it allowed me to have experience in intensive care that I really cared about.

Long live incompleteness, why?

Because there is a future in the unfinished.

What is fertilizer for you?

Something that pushes me to grow. A project, seeing its evolution in the imagined sense, being able alone to overcome the obstacles that arise. I think no one gives you anything and I don’t want anything to be given to me, I like to manage by myself when something troubles me. Besides, books fertilize me, reading, studying and, even if tiring, I continue to be grateful that I always have things to study.

3 words that you would match with unfinished?

Project, obstacle, disappointment.
