The One on One
The One on One is a real but entirely documented first date between the artist and a potential romantic interest. The work loosely references the reality television series The Bachelor in which the bachelor or bachelorette chooses a future husband or wife from 25 suitors. The One on One eliminates the inherent competition of The Bachelor/ette and focuses on the first date itself and the absurd act of filming it. The presence of camera operators in the work highlights how the film is made, situating it in an awkward place somewhere in between fiction and reality.
