Face Value: Reflections on Identity


Face Value: Reflections on Identity

Tufts University Gallery, Medford MA,
April 30 – May 17 1998


 Two looping videos, ‘133 Days’ and ‘133 Months’, played simultaneously on two monitors placed side-by-side. Structurally, the videos are identical, each consisting of 133 photographs of my face, one morphing into the next. The pacing and dissolve time are the same for each video. The length of both are equal: 18 min. 58 sec. The difference between them is that in ‘133 Days’ the timeline is 133 consecutive days: 2.23.87 –7.5.87, whereas in ‘133 Months’ the timeline is 133 consecutive months, beginning on the same date, 2.23.87, but ending 11 years later, on 2.23.98.
