You’ve Changed, 2002, 3:22 min
Judd’s activity as an artist is close to that of a tourist. The tourist’s gaze through the camera suggests an intimacy with their subjects, despite being a stranger in an unfamiliar place. You’ve Changed explores this duality of intimacy and distance. By videoing tourists and adding a voice-over that implies a personal history with them, Judd is imbuing the activity with pathos, evoking the loss of a lover that has left the scene. Gestures and movements are anticipated a few seconds before they arrive, compounding the atmosphere of being simultaneously both connected and disconnected from the world.
