Eating (Exhibition View)

The videos, recorded in PAL format, capture the process of a person eating from 3 different angles simultaneously. One stationary camera shows a close-up of the person's chin; another stationary camera zooms in on the food container in colour; lastly, a black-and-white surveillance camera is attached to the person's hand, recording the eating process in motion by moving between the mouth and the food container. The videos are displayed on 3 screens stacked vertically sitting on a 20cm-high display box; the 3 videos should be in sync with a tolerance of 2 frames.

Please refer to Artistic Working Manual of Zhang Peili, Lingnan Meishu Chubanshe, Guangzhou, 2008, p 240 for more information.
