I LOOK TO YOU a 16min 2 screen video work.
First showing I LOOK TO YOU considers how we recognise trust in this unprecedented time of distrust. This contemplative piece asks the viewer to engage with and respond to the eyes and expressions of strangers, with a sound track that invokes ceremony and meditation. The loop is punctuated by a short moving image montage / homage to sight and vision and communications. The music for this element is a recording by Eileen’s grand father, Bob Haring and his Orchestra, with an underscoring of Morse Code translation of I Look to You.
