Visiting Dora Maar began as a study of “falling apart” and “pulling oneself together,” visually considered in the lens of the canonical art history portrait. Dora Maar, an artist, was Picasso’s lover. He created a portrait where her features seem to fracture, move about in space and time and come undone. I evolved this into a moving image meditation of identity and self-assembly using video images of myself.
