Artist profile
This set of stills, was taken from a video piece in which I projected newsreader's faces onto my own and a fellow student's face.

The face is a blank canvas and acts as a screen for the projection.

The 3D static image of our faces is painted with the 2D moving image of a variety of newsreaders.

At times the features of both faces fall into sync, creating a third identity, before falling back into two separate faces which clash and become confused with one another again.

The combination of two identities of a different sex produces a drag like image of an ambiguous gender.

The video, although a piece in itself, is secondary to the stills.

It is the moment captured in the still, revealing a third identity, with which I am concerned.

The photograph, unlike video, displays a mini death in that it has no future or past, only the present.

It is this paralysis that interests me.
