What I'm Looking For

2004, 15 min, color, sound

In What I'm Looking For, Silver relates the story of a woman who sets out to photograph intimate moments in public space. As she finds herself drawn into a series of meetings with strangers contacted through an Internet dating service, her apparently simple task unfolds into ambiguity and obsession, ultimately becoming an investigation into questions of documentary versus fiction, private versus public, and the real versus the imagined.
