Narcissus, in mad love with his own image, is so desperate that he cannot move anymore, staying nights and days in a deep state of numbness. His tears create a river in which he will eventually drown. Meanwhile they give birth to the flower narcissus, that contains a numbness (narcos in greek) generating substance. Narcissus's  face appears on an iPad to symbolise our own addiction to our own image through selfies, hoping it will be liked by our peers and beyond. It gives us a feeling of false intimacy that makes us numb to the real one we don't even know anymore we are really looking for.
