Video Series
2013 - ongoing

Having been asked to comment on people they have recently met, we hear stories about 'messy collars' or 'a tilt of a head'. With every video of the series, we are introduced to new people, but through their gossip-like impressions on others without giving names, dates or location. Some tell the story of a pleasant encounter; others, not so much.

With a focus on the way we perceive others, the methods we use to decide if someone is trustworthy, and some of the shortcuts we use during this process; this project introduces people.
