“As he looked more keenly through the glass, it seemed to him as if moist moonbeams were rising in Olympia's eyes. “ – from ‘The Sandman’ by E.T.A. Hoffmann in 1817. Will Kim uses watercolor to explore his desire, struggles, and self identity confusion based on the German Romantic Novel, “The Sandman” by E.T.A. Hoffmann. ‘Beautiful Eyes’ is originally scored and performed by Kirin Kapin. Kim’s visual poetry will guide the audience to his twisted and personal interpretation of the novel. The main character, ‘Nathaniel’ starts his own journey of desire, memories of his childhood, and the nightmare of the Sandman, which means death to Nathaniel when he looks at a wooden doll that is sitting on a chair across from a window in his place.
