Narcism and Reflexivity

IMG_1776.JPG

A pearl of wisdom from class today:

Narcissus’s tragedy is that he was unable to see himself gazing at himself. Displaying a lack of reflexivity that in his case proved fatal.

Take a step back – look at what/how/why you’re doing.
Escape the binary of you and your reflection/object/other.
