The challenge for this assignment was to make a self portrait using any medium but to avoid the usual conventions of portraiture. The video is made from around twenty still images each one reduced to a single frame of video so that each appears for about one twenty-fifth of a second. The images then reappear in random order. I was interested to see how possible it would be to 'read' single images at this brief timescale. In the event the experiment seemed to work a bit like a video version of cubism to build up a kind of composite image in the mind. Unconventionally this 'portrait' was less about representing a character and more about examining viewers' perceptions.
