Leen Van Dommelen (BE): I EYE
I Eye arises from the curiosity about how the body deals with the uncomfortable feeling that comes with feeling watched. This feeling entails the desire to overcome the threatening distance of the gaze by seeking intimacy with that gaze. If the gaze exceeds a distance, would it be possible to shorten this distance?
