“Mine Eye literally considers the thematic notion of this experiential collection – Eyes Of The Beholder.”


The participant enters the device and brings the interface goggles close to their face. Their right eye is brought within 5-10mm of a USB microscope, which in turn, is connected to a monitor, and displays the video feed, only visible to their left eye. This creates a visual feedback loop within which the participant sees themselves looking at themselves seeing themselves looking, a statement here that sounds trite, but in a realtime experience carries a experiential gravitas.

Beyond the stunning beauty of looking into one’s own pupil, into that which we see every day, yet never really see – the intricate, delicate scape which is both totally familiar and unfamiliar.

This action and vision prompts questions:

is beauty in the eye of the beholder?

Is the eye the window of the soul?
