    Concept

    “The principal aim of this project is to test the limits of the persons that are being filmed by provoking/creating different states of emotions and corporal expressions. Through questions and responses between a small group of students, the idea is to have a real situation of action/re-action, where the subjects are free to answer or not the question that was made by their partner.”

  2. The concept of this work was very simple in the beginning, was thinking and created with a purpose, was thinking as an emotional frontier, and still is. From concepts of action / reaction, emotional expressions and a popular game among teenager’s, the “Truth Game”, was possible do this first Pim, Pam video.
    This work is about this action / reaction, this “Truth Game”, this emotional border, but is also a reflect of our teenager’s, is about this cultural thing that defines them. How they think, what they listing and see, what they talk about, what they thing about nowadays, about political, social issues. They did not reach to questions about polities and social issues, because there was no time to boil this “truth Game”.
    They do questions to each other, simple questions, but the answers are reflects of what they are.
