ONLINE DOSSIER: SOPHIE CALLE
This work speaks on several layers to me and my project.
First of all, also in my series there is an unmade bed. Looking at someone else's bed, even more if it is unmade, feels a bit uncomfortable. You feel like you are witnessing too much privacy, even intimacy. In lockdown and with all the video chats going on, you are constantly “in someone's” bedroom. Sophie Calle worked with this idea even more extreme as she took pictures of people sleeping in her bed. By inviting friends and even strangers, she overstepped several boarders of intimacy you would usually share with others.
Working with this thought, of intimacy you usually would not share with the outside world and making that visible is an approach I want to follow for the next photo ideas.
