VIDEO: PAINT A SELF-PORTRAIT BY TRYING TO TRACE MY MIRROR IMAGE ON A ONE-WAY MIRROR.
A big piece of glass functions as a one-way mirror, this allows me to trace my mirrored image, while the camera placed on the other side of the glass documents the process.
Over time my video self-portrait is erased by the painted self-portrait.
I record for twelve minutes, which is the time limit my camera imposes on my process. I have been repeating this process regularly since July 2010, shortly before I found out I was pregnant, and will end in May 2011, when the child will be born.
