Walter Zego


It is a part of your humane duty to weigh in on your inner self and fulfil your calling. Your inner most self is missing, and there is nothing absolute around you to pursue. If I take on many identities do I reach my inner self?


Walter Zego is your minds ticket to travel to wherever you want, as long as you pretend to be someone else. You are a dolphin and you use your sonar to find a friend in the Atlantic. You are 2 years old and seek a travel companion at a talk show. You are crossing the border and feeling safe has no meaning. You reach your ideal self by playing artistic music in an orchestra. Walter Zego is the least harmful way to release your emotional activity. Crusade into thy self.
