re:design myself

IV | 2013

There are woman, she feels delight and a fear in the bilateral character in itself between the girl and the woman.
She's escaping from something.
Light is chasing her The color closes her sight.
When being changed by myself, even if it's dazzling,
I can walk.

“re:design myself” is composed of seven short, one minute film clips. Between each clip is a monologue which provides a story line.
Seven short films consisting only of images and music. No words to explain various expressions and feelings. See passion swings in the interval between ‘a girl’ and ‘the woman’ where an unseen girl lies hidden within another.
