Self Portrait Archives 2015: Reflections on Dead Flowers (1 Image)

Sometimes I receive live flowers after a live performance.  Eventually, the flowers always die.  What happens to a performance after it is over?  What happens to the performer?  Do I die, just like the flowers?  Or is there a new version of myself, a reflection of myself created that lives on in the audience’s memory?  In this image, my reflection is pictured twice, both in the mirror, and in the vase.  I like one reflection better than the other (I’ll let you guess which one), but are they not both true representations of myself?  Why should I prefer one over the other?
