Project Synopsis
Self Portrait is a High Concept story which shows how self-judgmental and harmful we can be with ourselves when we are creating or working on something, it can get to feel like we are transporting ourselves to dark world. This is what happens to the main character in this story Clarissa, an artist who has a hard time creating her next project and ends up transporting herself physically into the darkest place of her mind where a part of her, (her alter ego Cora) brings up her biggest insecurities, by displaying them as an art exhibition, but later she realizes that she is enough and is giving the best of herself.
