— Indecisive Moments
Traditionally, a camera records an image from a singular vantage point, and a viewer of that image would see the same perspective that the camera recorded. But by subjecting a fauxtograph to advanced technology, one could begin to move through the three-dimensional space pictured in an image. Sometimes in doing this, hidden information is revealed.
In the case of Untitled (Apartment with Mirror) from 1982, zooming in on and tracking across the mirror hanging on the far wall of the apartment reveals a new corner of the room that hides a female figure. Untitled (Portrait of Zhora) from 1982, was made by refauxtographing the face of the woman hidden in this new perspective of Untitled (Apartment with Mirror).
