Youngwoong Jang is a Korean student filmmaker whose short "Mirage," about a tiny cyborg who needs a drop of water to survive, is one of the most beautiful examples you'll see of CGI as art.

Jang says that the movie is about his experience as a collector, feeling "endless desire." But we watch his tiny cyborg climb strange flowering plants, and following the impossible, gorgeous curves of a water pipe system, there is no feeling of urgency. Instead there is an almost meditative feeling as this lovely world unfolds. You're left with a quiet appreciation for all the hidden places where water droplets are to be found. And a desire to see more work from Jang.
