Coming from a video and conceptual background, the portfolio shows a predominant category in film making and experimentation with video. The progress with video and film projects gave the portfolio versatility and an adaptive edge in terms of how ideas could be used. This allowed achievements and acceptances into various exhibitions, international film festivals, events, press, global companies, agencies and brands.

The idea was to explore people's reactions to having a camera present and their response to it. Questioning the extent of how genuine their behavior was by looking at whether they are performing, or just being themselves when a camera is present.

The final outcome was presented using 5 TV monitors that were placed next to each other showing them in the room. This was made into a study to see how viewer's respond to them, and who they found the most interesting to watch.

The piece was constructed by using 5 people (not actors) and isolating them on separate days in the room. The same space was used for each person. They were left in the room for a period of one hour alone with a video camera recording.

time duration: 1 hour per person

Below is a representation of the installation and video stills of the participants. The video contains 1 minute clips of the piece.
