Selves (Sitting with Myself)

Projected video, mixed media
286" x 155" (installation)

This is a shortened segment of one of the two video projections that are included in the exhibition of this installation artwork. The two videos are then projected onto opposing walls of the gallery space from video projectors mounted on pedestals in the center of the room.

As a gesture of self-study and reflection, I stare at a computer screen that features a self-portrait from my youth. My face is recorded by the front-facing webcam as I moved and shifts in an effort to align my real-time video image to a portrait from my past. A second webcam records this process from behind, capturing an additional perspective of the perspective of me as I participate in the exercise.
