The interactive eye-tracking installation charts, on two opposite monitors, the eye tracks of eye contact between two people. The recorded tracks of each eye’s motion gradually cover the opposite eye like a sketched skein of black wool. When one of the exhibition’s visitors steps between the two monitors, the sketched lines disappear and the process begins anew. The perceiving organ is the performing organ all at once; observation and representation blend without detouring through the artist’s hand.
