Motion Picture (video without sound)
Amsterdam, THE NETHERLANDS
In Winter 2006, artist & mentor Uta Eisenreich assigned us a project to create a video work with the theme “Self-Image”.
Self-Image is about how the valid idea of oneself in one’s own eyes and the other’s, the relationship between them, how we have our own idea of ourselves, how do we think or want other people see us, and how do other people actually perceive us.
The video was filmed in the style that we usually see on television with anonymous interviewees in their backlit shadows. It questions about how realistic from our consciousness of self-image and how reliable is our construction of one’s image from the “facts” being presented to all of us.
It is a crossover between fiction and reality and most of the times a pathetic fantasy.
