Just be glad it's not you combines texts sourced from various threads on the topic of narcissism from Quora is an online forum for crowd sourcing answers to questions that vary vastly in subject matter and are often posted anonymously. Various self-proclaimed experts have listed accounts, definitions, and directives on the theme of narcissism, which are here displayed across three screens. The texts are edited to appear in time to a specially commissioned hard techno track from composer Arthur Hureau.

The work is installed in a black box space of a night club, with integrated flashing light display and thumping PA soundsystem.
