Can a material be encapsulated and converted into a mental state?
In the collection "Metamorphosis" the personality disorder narcissism is interpreted with materiality as a starting point, but also as a social phenomenon. The alternative bodies are presented in a three-step evolution. The first stage represents the disorder hidden underneath the surface, which then slowly morphs into stage two, to finally reach the ultimate phase, The Total Narcissist.
