For more than a year, David and Hi-jin invited every person who visited their home to sit for a silent, fifteen second video portrait. Few were confident from the start. Many began uncomfortably, but grew into the role. Almost all showed “transitional states” during which they relaxed or displayed unique signs of how they were feeling. The 9-channel installation shows short intervals taken from these portraits at critical or transitional moments where much is said and much is unspoken.
