Scan Line Lover is a motion picture portrait of my girlfriend, Elmira. Usually, when I make recordings of her, I also incorporate myself into the process by performing with her in front of the camera. Now, this project focuses on her, or at least on my perception of her. That’s how I started thinking about exactly how I see her body with its marks, scars and blemishes. These things make her who she is today. I’d hope this portrait to be a tangible experience—all about the body, and not as much about personality, or even character.
While this portrait is about all the tiny details of her body that speak to me of something palpable, something real, it is also about the parts of her that no one gets to see--literally the insides of her.
This video represents the body as a landscape.
