In this work ‘The Mirror’ I am researching narcissistic behavior. The modern (Western) society is drenched with narcissistic behavior, as are we, as are you and as am I. Some have already announced the narcissism epidemic* years ago. Psychiatry is the reflective mirror of the world we are living in and patients are the symptom carriers of a disease where the entire society will be suffering from.
I confront and immerse myself in the black diseased water and wallow in my own reflection. The narcissism survives.
