Selfterapie, video, 23min, 2018.

The video is a non-permanent video-diary exposing existential and spiritual crisis of modern youth through the image of myself. The work consists of the answers to 6 questions, that I formulate on the base of my psychological problems. The main intention was to find the reasons of my negative emotions. With the help of self reflection I was trying to lead audience to identity with me and to answer the following questions: 1. Why don’t I love myself? 2. Why am I afraid of creating? 3. What if I will never be the person that I want to be? 4. Why do I live? 5. Why am I doing, everything that I am doing and why am I here, where I am now? 6. Why am I alone on my way? I used a front-facing camera on my IPhone SE, which I had near at hand every time when I needed to document my thoughts. Shooting was longing 2 months; at the beginning i was filming regularly every day. Later it was more naturally and I was filming it unregularly, only when I wanted. During shooting and post production I abided by chronology. Sometimes I stopped the filming purposefully, sometimes I just forget to answer some of the questions. The most important things for me were naturalness and sincerity.
