Inspired by performance artists such as Yang Eun Joo, what I wanted to do was to experience how it was like living with my head covered with a box and to also capture people’s reaction when they see me.
I went around town with my friend, who helped me to capture my journey, going about doing normal things like eating, walking along the streets, browsing books in the bookstore and taking the public transport. The images captured represents some reactions of the public like for example staring, pointing and laughing.
The 90 images are divided into 4 sections: eating, walking, reading and travelling. The images are taken in a sequence for each section and when put together they form a stop motion video.
Though this may seem like an easy task to do, what I realised was that it wasn’t that easy to go out in public wearing a box and it really took a lot of courage for me to do that. Although I hesitated at first, after going through this experience I realised that I really enjoyed it.
