BRUSSELS JUNE 2019
Exhibition: A HUMAN INTERACTION
It is not only our closely regarded friends that have depth, but also the stranger. In the city, we experience our neighbors by brief glances. From a single look we draw a myriad of conclusions based on stereotypes and assumptions. We have been told that staring is impolite. Yet, sometimes we desperately wish we could stare a bit longer, take in someone's face, to know where that person just came from, where or whom they are going to visit next.
Sometimes, to meet a person, all you need to do is ask (they might even agree to become part of your experimental documentary). It is through our connections with one another that we have the best opportunity to learn and grow.
