You Want Me

Celina Alvarado

6 intimate stories told through 6 silent movies and 6 blind dialogues and discovered by the viewer line by line, movie by movie.

In times where the search for love is taking over by the search of sex, intimacy captured by a hidden camera reveals general confusions on life and goals in a truth flavor.

Background
I see people desperately searching for company pretending they don't need any, I see emptiness when pretending fullness, I see sadness when happiness is pretended and I just show it off with the hope of questioning what we really are searching for in life, what our truly goals are.


Audience
Anybody and everybody.

User Scenario
A monitor and headphones to listen to the silent and help concentrate on the stories.

Implementation
I shot the silent movies and gathered some real dialogues. I realized they complement each other and put them together to express a general idea that is common place on all of them.

Conclusion
I see the fear we have when facing real interaction with people and the way we pretend fullfilness
when emptiness is what we are trying to run away from. A cynical look at everyday relationships.
