I’m interested in using the high speed and possibly thermal camera to capture Faith in a way that focuses on her physicality when put through a process of exertion, physical & mental. I’m interested in creating a situation where I’m able to visualize this exertion in the form of sweat, breath, tears, or saliva. I’m very interested in capturing her breathing in detail – and to this end, I am planning to have her run, to work up a sweat, and then to film her as she is breathing when she stops running. I would like to situate this portrait outdoors, with the environment around her, and work WITH the cold weather to help visualize this physical process. I’m drawing influence from the artists Marilyn Minter, Collier Schorr, Rineke Dijkystra, Bruce Nauman, and also advertising imagery of atheletes.
