The Water of Narcissus

2016 | 10’00’’

Artist’s Note

I believe humans are walking mirror. In 'The Disciple' by Oscar Wilde, a short story based on a famous Greek myth about narcissism, a black humour lies in a dialogue between 'the pool' and 'the Oreads'. In addition to the story, I gave another twist by depriving a human character of its mobility and by making it function as 'the pool', a narcissistic mirror.

Note: The original length of this film is 10 mins; An introduction, which is intended to be played along with live music I perform with a small bamboo flute, and end credits are excluded.
