Woman Walking is a two-channel video that displays two perspectives of the same experience; one video shows her from the front while the other video shows her from the back. From the back, we see her objectification, what a person walking behind this woman on the street would see: a beautiful, fit woman with a confident, sexy walk. From the front, we see her humanization: a woman who is alert, clutching her purse and cell phone as she watches out for potential predators and dangers. Walking alone, especially as a woman, can be an unnerving, vulnerable experience that is too often perceived as an invitation.
