ABOUT THIS ARTWORK
Reflections is an interactive portraits series allowing the visitor to interact with the photos. By activating the webcam, the visitors can see themselves in the reflection in the eyes of the portraits, replacing the reflection normally reserved for the photographer.
Moreover, visitors can interact with the portraits by covering the webcam, virtually placing their finger on the forehead of the portraits. This triggers the subjects to "fall" backwards and eventually dissolve into dust, highlighting that fleeting moment that exists between the portrait and the viewer, the photographer and the photographed, a fraction of time sealed into existance.
There is also a physical installation of reflections, having multiple portraits displayed on a screen in an exhibition gallery, allowing visitors to interact with them with hand gestures.
