‘Reduction of The Self’ is an interactive narrative of the self circumscribed by the notion of social connections. Employing Irwin Altman’s onion analogy with the use of Russian nesting dolls, the artwork aims to peel the many layers of the self to reveal its core through the artist's personal experiences. The interaction includes opening and closing of the dolls to create combinations that activate different stories. These stories are presented in the form of illustrated cinemagraphs, which is an amalgamation of static images and animated video clips, accompanied by matching music to further accentuate the emotions that are encapsulated within its narratives.
