Mirrors for Monsters is a body of work created by Alejandro Watson in partial fulfillment of the requirements for earning a Master of Fine Arts in Entrepreneurial Digital Cinema from the University of Central Florida. The body of work consists of a feature length documentary, MHD, several installations (Self-Acknowledgement/Self-Acceptance, Garden of Bodies, Why Am I Like This?, Not My Thoughts), several short video pieces (In A Dream I Saw A Way to Survive and I Was Full of Joy, Car Ride (Baker Act Version), My Lunch With Andy, Prompts) and an art book, It's All Good. The body experiments with how best to illustrate the author's various intersecting identities, as well as the experiences of other underrepresented groups. The works that comprise the body focus on different aspects of mental health, body image, and gender through the media of film, installation, and book art.
