Where Are You  is an interactive portrait that seeks to question the notion of being-in-the-world.  Taking the form of a sculptural object that acts as a mirrored viewing portal, the work beckons the viewer to find themselves in the frame. However, the ‘portrait’ offered is a transient one, where the viewer dissolves into their surroundings and disappears altogether.  The work is part of an ongoing exploration of the changing nature of the notion of ‘self’ in the evolving technological heterotopia and an interrogation of the boundaries of portraiture.  This disobedient ‘selfie’ questions – where are you when you cannot see yourself?
