Title: A Face
Faces are endlessly fascinating. Their diversity, versatility and unrivalled ability to communicate make them an enigma. Faces are one’s identity, where one’s mind and personality manifest themselves. But can you really know a person through the face? Looking at a face, you need some more to recognize what’s behind. So rather, your face owns you, and your face is the identity that you cannot choose.
Video 1 (CologneOFF IV)
In Trace, by using 8 passport photos and very subtle changing, I try to depict unawareness of aging. The 8 photos cross more than fifty years of the protagonist and the last scene shows his present appearance of 70s. This work combines these 2 important elements, still and moving, together and make it have a poetic visual image and universal meaning.
