BEN JUDD (Londres, UK)

I LOVE, 715, 2003
Was videod surreptitiously at an amateur photography club in London. The voice-over that Judd has added describes an idea of separateness and connectedness.
By observing small movements, such as a man scratching his nose or nodding, and by saying that he misses the way in which this person does this,
Judd implies the intimacy of a personal history with the men, evoking a feeling of loss. The words come before the action, implying a familiarity and compounding the feeling of a delusion of intimacy.
Although sometimes videod from a distance, Judd also directly locates himself within the subject he is videoing,
and is both a part of the activity of observing and is also separate from it, often becoming a subject of suspicion.
