"I began with a group of students working in pairs, interviewing each other and filming their faces and bodies in close-up. Framing the shots in extreme close-up helps to overcome issues with body image and privacy. Fragmenting of the face explores feelings that can confront us as disabled people when photographed or filmed, issues of identity imposed by the reactions of others."
"I juxtaposed the students’ close-up footage of each other’s eyes and lips to create a split-screen DV portrait, with a soundtrack edited from their interviews. The title is a quote from one of the students."
