Photoprint on paper, 13 807 self portraits 2005-2010, 110x190cm.
Between 2005 -2010 I took a series of self portraits every day. This work has been a blind spot in my artistic practice – as many of my archives are – and I saw it increase because my computer almost crashed because of the amount of images. There is a longing to understand myself in order to understand others and to constantly confront myself with snapshots of myself was my way of dealing with self control, understanding who I am, what people see when they look at me, and the clash and the confusion to never recognize my image. In a symbolic and mental way all the images lead up to my own face and the “big” face is the last image taken in this project.
