Residency in Porto (2015)
DE LICEIRAS 18
These films are explorations of the material world from the perspective of objects being moved by various people in the city of Porto in Portugal. Many of the objects I recorded were in the context of people doing manual labour, often in public spaces. I invited participants to be part of the project by approaching them in the street and explaining the project in English and a text translation written in Portuguese. The handheld camera was then attached to the object using tape and the participant was asked to continue their activity.
This project was produced whilst on residency at DE LICEIRAS 18 in Porto, Portugal.
