CUTTER (2008)

2 min 52 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"Cutting is a phenomenon where the sufferer is experiencing so much anxiety that self-harm is actually a release from the pain their experiencing, and is an extreme form of narcissism. Here the viewer moves from being a passive member of the audience to become the actual subject of the video."
