Out Of Control

In public sidewalks and plazas, in front of a plain background, participants are invited to be tickled in front of a high-speed video camera, capturing a close­up of them going from straight­faced to ticklish chaos, at 500 frames per second. These detailed, slow-motion portraits are projected on large 8'x 8' walls, two at a time, as a video-installation.


Through Out of Control, we see communities on the level of uncontrolled biological reflex. Largely as a response to the narrow range of self-expression via photographs proliferated through Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, Out of Control is not about reproducing the dominant codes of "beauty", "power" and "cool", just the chaos of our physio­anatomy in untamed expression...in ways that people have never seen themselves before.
