This film presents the personality and work of the artist, Cameron. She is seen as an Alchemist, whose work leads to the transmutation of Immortality: the artist herself becomes a figure of gold, gazing upon the spectator with the eyes of Eternity. The voice of Cameron speaks from her Magical Diaries during the visual exploration of her work in film. --C. H.
