Self Portrait: 2009
Video capture through the eyepiece of a microscope
The first photograph of myself taken on May 7th, 1982 was placed under a stereomicroscope and was illuminated using fiber optics. The video capture was made with an iphone which was placed up to the eyepiece. Very slight adjustments to its position were made in an attempt to capture the image. The sound was recorded from the lull of the fiber optic lamp-house fan.
