D-llusion, Gerrard Martin Dance D-llusion

'D-llusion' explores perceptions of body-image seen through a young woman's eyes. As she battles with her psyche she percieves herself through media sound-bites and through her 'mirror image'. An unheatlhy obsession with her reflection results in her self-image becoming distorted. Is her 'mirror' an apparition, or a psychological nemesis; is the image real, or a figment of a delusional mind?
