The Mirror Stage

fantasies in black and white

The Beautiful Self?

By using haptic visions, I have worked with Lacan's mirror stage. The story is of a young girl lost in her own reflections. She is searching for the perfect, complete self until finally entering into the reflection, where the beauty can then shine through. My project has been heavily influenced by the work of Tarkovsky.
