AN EYE FOR AN EYE

Video installation, 3.5" plexiglass screen, 10 mins, 2010.

The video follows the eye of Erika, the protagonist peeper from the film The Piano Teacher (Isabelle Huppert). Decontextualizing this peeping eye from Erika's narrative and focusing on it as subject, reveals it as an enigmatic and morphing entity. It meets the viewer's eye intimately on a small screen at eye level.
