Something in Someone’s Eye (2014) is a series of cinematic portraits alternating between subtle movement and photographic stillness. The installation is composed of one 16mm film looping continuously, and four vinyl reproductions of the filmstrips. By working with these two distinct modes of presentation — the 16mm film requiring the viewer to remain still and the filmstrips entailing a physical movement across the space — the installation accentuates the spatiality and materiality of time passing. With the use of the now-discontinued Kodak Ektachrome colour reversal film stock as source material, the transient nature of celluloid film mirrors the ephemeral nature of the sitter's gaze. Through the progressive destruction of the film as it continues to play, the work brings life to a material and a subject matter that will inevitably disappear with time.
