Sleepy artist (a video portrait)
"Sometimes I’ll pretend to take a photograph while I’m actually filming the ongoing scene, recording the transition between the expectation of a momentary photograph and the growing question of why it’s taking so long. I’ll pretend to fumble around as if my phone is freezing to extend the length of this video portrait. The eventual realisation that I’m filming often prompts a comment about being duped, followed by a genuine expression to which I’ll say something like: ‘that’s the smile I was looking for".
"We were unwinding with a variety of bottle-ends after an installation that had turned into an unexpected all-nighter. I had no idea that Name had set the camera running. Accordingly, the footage remains unedited. We slept in bubble wrap".
