An experimental portrait of an artist whose reflexive gestures explore time, light, cinema, and image.
An experimental self-portrait, MMXIII explores phenomenological subtlety, intersections of construct and verité, and the ways in which technology, landscape, and beauty coalesce. Here, an artist's reflexive gestures are devoted to making aesthetic experiences out of everyday life, and to cinema. We are increasingly immersed in screens and image—MMXIII explores this immersion.

"There is a beautiful balance between [the] visual and sound design, and ideas gently emerge as to how we relate to nature, technology, and the past. Somehow in the end, I felt more story and emotion watching MMXIII than in most films I see." — Patrick Wang
