Study for Profiles, Martine Stig, 2017-18
Study for Profiles (2017) Profiles is a study of the human facial profile, with its characteristic shape that leans on a gaze or camera at eye-level. The human depicted from the human perspective; anthropocentrism at its best.

still Planar (2017, HD, 8.54”), Martine Stig, 2017
Planar, a black & white film, shot from a balcony in Genua, scans the surface of the city. Playing with connotations of surveillance drones and ‘Film Noir’ the long lens seems to act on human presence but follows nobody.
