Fine Art > Video "Portraits"

Each figure is meant to be displayed life sized on their own monitor with vertical orientation.

My purpose was to investigate human perceptions of nonverbal communication cues, specifically in regards to eye contact and gaze. My strategy for this entailed editing out the moments when my subjects blinked, creating an intense continuous stare. It was my first experience with video as a tool to challenge a viewer’s gaze and explore notions of mutual objectification.
