Eyes/Desires is a hybrid project using appropriated footage, stylized animation and live action. It is a depiction of myself (the filmmaker) entering the viewer's eye, crossing through the threshold of the screen like an astronaut between two celestial spheres. Once inside, I ask directly what the viewer's expectations and desires are, and replace his/her consciousness with an invented one.
