Special thanks to Nadia Hotait and Julio Obelleiro.

The video installation “As Inside as the Eye can See” presents two eyes trying to see each other as close as they can. The avidity of “seeing” the “other”, of entering in his/her space and trying to understand, or even share, the other person’s intimacy through the gaze, turns out to be an effort in vain because without distance we cannot see. We find ourselves in a paradox: so close but unable to see more than a blurred image.

In this work the obsession to see closely the other person, has a visual blindness as consequence. The gaze becomes now more of an haptic sense, perceiving the other not through the sight but through the rubbing between the eyelashes. The resulting image embodies a physical eye that beats, touches and relates intimately.
