Family Portraits in the Blink of an Eye video installation examines the relationship between painting, photography and moving image as a form of a portrait. In four scenes, the performers, some of them family members, look a long while in the camera or to the side. All scenes are united with a single blink of the eyes, the only movement of the performers during the scenes. The illusion of ”still image” is emphasized by the framed projections and the compositions of the performers.
