Photobooth 2009
An inquiry into the new phenomenon driven by our intensifying ability to exchange and circulate self images has driven an inquiry into one’s ability to capture and present one’s image and present the self as one wants to be seen.
In the context of Trinidad & Tobago’s Erotic Art Week 2009, Rodell Warner pushed this inquiry into the realm of how people imaged themselves as erotic, and how willing they might be to share those images. He created “the Photobooth”; a small, temporary studio space that provided visitors with privacy and a remote control that triggered a stationary camera.
With their signed permission, the images that participants captured of themselves were exhibited to the public the following night.
