Perception Score: Just Looking - Maija Hirvanen
Perception Score is about the various roles of the camera in relation to the subject of the picture. How are the performer, the situation and the public space affected by these roles? The audience is invited to use the three cameras provided in the gallery. The performance can be seen as creating performative statements about visual identities and commenting on situations created by different gazes.
