Narcissicon is inseparably entangled from daydreaming. It is a 43 minute video without a definitive beginning or end. The earliest shot dates back to five years ago, some of the text dates back to fourteen years ago and certain robotic moves were conceived nine years ago but completed much later. The video will be accompanied by a group of film stills.
