Gadfly: Socrates was dubbed the original gadfly, challenging the social norms of his time, refusing to let his students be conditioned and not allowed to think for themselves. This piece follows a being lead from birth by his heart, weak, yet fresh and uncontaminated at first. Gradually he grows to only reflect his makers who have conditioned him, until he painfully reveals his own face to himself, a process which although liberating, ultimately leaves him colorless, with a blackened heart, hard and insensitive till his demise.
