12 Hour Portrait

12 hour Portrait depicts a studio performance while two video cameras make a time lapse exposure over the course of a day. The work sits somewhere between pleasure and pain as the rising sun floods the studio changing the set and mood. In time, the tenseness is more similar to an execution view after the light crosses the seated form. This piece remains a seminal exploration in the role of performance in picture making.
