painting & photography, animation
2014-2015

I began to make self-portraits, one portrait per day, for a whole year. I take photographs, posing with the portrait in front of my face. Sometimes there's somebody else behind the portrait. Sometimes there are many people posing with the portraits.

I am also making an animation out of the portraits. I have so many different facial expressions painted, that I can make the portrait talk. In animation all the 365 portraits become one (lunatic) person; the face moves weirdly, but it still looks like mine.

How will my painting skills develop on a project like this? At the end of the project I probably can paint myself without looking to the mirror, but can I paint others as well?
