Staring Contest

Performance at SOMArts Cultural Center's "100 Performances for the Hole" Program, December 10th, 2011

Artwork Information

At 11:30 pm, I positioned my camera upstage in front of an audience at the SOMArts Cultural Center. I placed the camera on a timed exposure and posed in front of the audience in order to create the photographic impression that I was speaking. When the picture was taken, I reset the timed exposure and posed again, until the picture was taken. I repeated this process as many times as I could in four minutes, moving the camera once, for a different viewpoint. I was successful in taking seven pictures, one of which is featured above.
