Lakonikon (part of the New York Times Project)
I have collected images from the "New York Times" issues published between 2002 and 2003. Eliciting the bodily gestures out of the news context (be it mourners of the World Trade Center, a terrorist attack in Israel, a funeral of a Palestinian, a Chechnyan, or a Russian, etc.) I reenacted them in front of a video camera without revealing their original context. I tried to repeat the gesture as accurately as I could -- without investing any emotion in the gesture.
