Continuing my preoccupation with the self imagery after a series of paintings, this is an attempt to expand the thought into the moving images where the 'self' is involved in chasing the intangible urban dreams. The elusive mythical character of 'golden deer' repeatedly and endlessly haunts the protagonist within the urban backdrop. The series of visuals portray an interpretation of everyday reality and nurtures the fragile feelings of human emotions and the images are caught between complex situations and dilemmas of reality.
