Find Yourself Through Me

Find Yourself Through Me
Media: Digital portrait and performance for one person and many voyeurs
Date: 2006

Description: In this work I lead a single audience member through a brief meditation where I enable a transformation into “me.” I capture that moment with a digital camera and add that image to a growing portrait of me(s) while others look on. This performance may last several hours. It also exists as a portrait for exhibition.
