Spectral Body

I isolated parts of my body in front of the camera and experimented with how to move them, almost in a scientific or empirical way of separating parts for testing. The different shots consist of my face, feet, and hands.

In editing, I added all my shots to the timeline and to make them interact I overplayed them and created a changing opacity, so that sometimes the face is more pronounced, and sometimes the hands. I also really enjoyed looking at the four feet together, like a bouquet of flowers.

The effect of the overlay between face and hands gives me a physical sensation of touch. I can feel my face when I am watching it. Certain hand movements or actions are also particularly evocative. At one point one of my hands is stroking and pulling the other hands finger and it gives me a very strange sensation watching it. Again, I feel like I can feel it.
