is an adventure and an artificially constructed social situation.
Each date is a type of reconnaissance mission: my outfits are
disguises, my best behavior is a persona, and my questions are
am a spy in my own life. Armed with a secret pinhole video camera
and miniature microphone, concealed in my coat, I record my dates.
Since dating is a kind of detective assignment, using a surveillance
camera is a fitting method of documentation.
dates fall into three categories - those who agree to let me film
them, those who want to date me because they will be filmed, and
those who don't know they are being filmed - and who I have to
later tell about the project and ask to sign a model release.
