This video was submitted for The One Minutes, a global network devoted to moving image. The theme is Martians Send Videos Home looking at estrangement. 'I Died for Beauty' looks at the disruption of habitual perceptions of beauty. We look in the mirror and we want to be someone else or a 'better' version of ourselves.

The uncomfortable and disruptive music has been produced by Peter Richards. The video is now part of their collection.
