This video work derived from the series, The Beaming Girl, a project I started while residing in Helsinki, Finland.
It was started off as photography work where all of the self-portraits were taken with a self-timer camera in different public and private places. The self-portrait/protagonist in the series has been manipulated with a beam from the eyes (THE BEAMING GIRL).
This perhaps has become an art performance staged in real life where the boundary of life and art is blurred, and it serves my art inquiry on the framing of art: from where or how art is seen as art, what and when it is not. The role of an artist is hence ambiguous and hard to be identified and categorised. This series has been published as a book series titled SEMI PRIVATE LIFE IN HELSINKI.
