Non Speaking Terms

We asked people in the street if they could tell something to their loved ones into the camera. For this project we filmed more than 600 portraits of which we selected 120. Standing at a distance you will not be able to hear what the portrait has to say to you. When you approach the screen, he or she begins to speak. Meanwhile you yourself are being filmed and portrayed onto the right screen, with a linked sentence as subtitle.
