EIGHT PEOPLE WHO LOOK LIKE ME - When Ferguson happened in 2014, people were asking for a force who 'looks like us'. “Eight People Who Look Like Me” takes inspiration from this and from casting calls that arrange auditionees by body type. I’m curious how appearance defines us and relates us to others; how faces, though expressive, are still limited in their capacity to identify our inner selves and histories; and I wonder if our appearance informs our ability to empathize with strangers. If I see a group of people who resemble one another but not myself, how quickly can I distinguish each individual? And when I do relate to someone, is it because I see in them my own image? I found these eight red-haired white women between the ages of twenty and forty by posting a want ad entitled ‘Be My Selfie’.
