The No Face Doll in Nibbling, Captivating and Alluring is the alter ego, the little doll girl that feels she loses face, her self-identity from lost love. Pictured here are two intimates, a digital camera in the girl’s hand. They have photographed each other and their intimacy is mediated by their focus upon the camera’s viewfinder. Like a contemporary Narcissus they have fallen in love with the camera’s reflected image. Will they be frozen for eternity with their self-gaze or will their eyes meet and see the other as another?
