The short film Reveal focuses on the evolution of a portrait made on a piece of paper videoed from the fixed viewpoint of a small camera device above a drawing board. The soundtrack plays back the developing conversations and interactions Goodwin had with strangers whom he approached for permission to let him draw their portrait. The video discloses the decision process and accumulation of marks for each drawing as well as the incremental exchange between 'sitter' and 'artist'. This short film comprises of 2 encounters from a larger installation work in which the video of 36 different evolving portraits is projected.
