Douglas Rosenberg and Ami Skånberg Dahlstedt are influenced by gender scholar and filmmaker Trinh T. Minh-ha, and her method of not speaking about something, but speak nearby for making visible the invisible and to refuse to objectify what is in front of the camera.
What is our full visibility? How can technology support a caring gaze and to lessen one’s own presence in space? How can opacity be used as a method either for sharing a space democratically or to enable an invisible dance with nonhumans and ancestors? As a metaphor in making performative work behind and in front of the camera?
