Moving Portrait is a live interactive portrait that captures a likeness of the viewer as they stand in front of the work. However, this likeness is only given when the viewer is moving - if they stand still, they disappear into a void of blackness.
This work is a part of an ongoing project that aims to in push at the boundaries of portraiture and explore the evolution of the notions of ‘being’ and ‘presence’ as influenced by evolving technological heterotopias.
Moving Portrait examines the ways in which the screen acts upon notions of self and the way in which the self is acted out upon the screen. This portrait explores the oscillation between stasis and flux in being and performing self, onscreen and online.
