This work acts in opposition to the previous studies in its violent interpretation of extreme emotions. Overlaid video montage through manipulation and repetition breaks down the image; the face distorts, the skin collapses and the flesh around the mouth destructs. Closer to the paintings of Francis Bacon than traditional video portraiture this work is an unsettling experience for the viewer.
