Look Like Me

These images came to me in a dream. There was the vixen that rendered me helpless. She took away my vision. I was only allowed to see her change my look. I had no choice but to succumb to the appearance she laid over me. I became what she wanted. I was made to look like her.

Director Statement

These images came to me in a dream. They grew into a video in my mind. I shared the idea with Alex Currington (ig: @alx.cur) and in the subsequent conversation I said: I want you to make me look like you. Thus, the piece was born.
