A film by Eric Fong, 2013. A reflection on facial disfigurement and identity. Looking at a face reflected in water may suggest narcissism, which usually has a negative connotation. However, psychologists have argued that healthy narcissism or self-love can be a required element for the development of identity. In this context, it questions if a certain amount of healthy narcissism is essential to living with disfigurement?
Reflection 05 is one in a series of five videos about disfigurement. Each video can be screened alone as a single-channel work, or together as a 5-channel projection.
