sight

2008

The eye is observed by the video camera while it is itself observing. It can be seen how it scrutinizes the world from its corporal dwelling, creating a visual communication with the “other”.

By closely observing the eye I see how the eyelashes act like a curtain or blind, allowing the light in or providing shade when necessary. As the lens zooms in I see them wiping off the fine particles thus becoming a perfect guardian of the defenseless eye.

I am fascinated by the complex versatility of eyelashes: the tiniest hairs in the body and yet the most delicate and beautiful. They are synonymous with femininity and protectors of the sight, the most developed sense in the Contemporary Era.
