Her Self - a portrait

The woman in the portrait is surprised to discover that she is being watched. First flattered, she wants to impress the viewer but looses herself in the process. Suddenly she realize that her mirrored image is totally out of sync and  being watched becomes uncomfortable and difficult to relate to. 

A piece about the complexity of being seen or watched, about self images, getting stuck in self made roles and the subtle choices we make to stay within our frame.

Existential questions regarding who the mirrored image is, who is the viewer, who is viewing whom and who is Her Self?
