‘Beautiful Faces’ is the second part in my three-part series: Places, Faces, Traces. This project was my way of looking at human connection within the national lockdown; how do we affect and change spaces by our relationships to objects. I determined that three things create connection within our lives- other people, the places where we see these people and the objects we use to interact with others. This part of the project was focused on humans who bring me peace and I have a connection to. I got my friends to send in a short clip of themselves looking into the camera; not only did I want this to bring the challenge of looking at themselves for a significant amount of time, but also to allow audience members to connect with them as ‘characters’ in the film.
