The Gift

(Performance video 4.40 mins)

Tent Gallery, ECA.2015.

I intend to enlist the help of a male volunteer who will be seated. A film camera will focus entirely upon his face that will fill the frame. Out of shot, I will face him and remove all my clothing in order to change his biological state. If successful, his changing condition will be apparent in his face through reddening, pupil dilation and slight sweating. The cause of this change will of course not be evident. The male will then repeat the performance for the female.


Thanks to Jonathan Carter for participanting.
