Subflection is a 20’ loop computer-generated A/V installation. This piece explores the poetic/philosophical relationship between subject and object in two chapters. The first chapter called The_Doppelgänger deals with the concept of the Other as the neighbour, through the Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein metaphor and the thoughts of Sartre. The second chapter called The_Other_In_itself deals with the concept of the emancipation of the other as a subject itself, through the ideas of freedom, autonomy and moral subject of Emmanuel Kant.
