Restrepo also implements collage to explore or examine the human soul, mind, or spirit. He re-contextualizes images to convene something that is difficult or impossible to understand or explain. This process lends itself to aid in the distinguishing characteristics of a particular person or thing of the same kind, which allows for psychological undertones to linger.

Carl Jung is a great influence for Restrepo, especially his expansion of individuation, the forming and development of the personality. Through piecing images together in a single substrate, Restrepo aims to focus on two different centers of personality: the ego, the center of consciousness, and the unconscious mind.
