Figure to Ground: Dialogic Portraits, a series by Felicity Allen

Film etc.

Figure to Ground – a Site Losing its System shown here

As part of the ‘People Like You’ research project Felicity Allen was offered a residency in which to develop a new series in her Dialogic Portraits work, to consider with her sitters questions of traditional representation (such as portraiture) and ideas of the self associated with digital culture. She produced a series of portraits, shown here in Rooms, and made audio recordings with the sitters, both of which form the basis for her 12-minute film, Figure to Ground – a site losing its system.
