Portrait Series No.1 is an interactive portrait that plays with the human gaze and behavior. Related to old oil paintings and to photography, this portrait focus on androgyny, the fine line between masculinity and femininity.
The work questions how we look at art, which usually is patient to be looked at.
This work chooses as its subject characters of androgynous gender. How will the spectator react to the androgynous features of the model?

Will they stare at the portrait? 

Will they feel like being watched, or even ashamed?

Portrait Series No.1 engages the viewer - who might stare - by looking back. The work reacts if it is approached, and looks outside its frame - at you.

Use your iPad / iPhone as a temporary artwork!

Portrait Series No.1 is developed at V2_Lab as part of the  Summer Sessions 2012
