The Gaze is an installation that combines video, sound and interactivity. A young woman faces an empty chair, on which the viewer is invited to sit.
The Gaze explores the emotions that we unconsciously try to decode and normalize in our relation to others, as well as the dynamics of influence and uncertainty between individuals. The installation brings viewers face to face with their feelings in the context of a non-verbal conversation. The work speaks to the instability inherent in interpersonal relationships and to our instinctive desire to interpret the other’s gaze.
Thanks to the New Media Creation Grant for Young Artists, Martine Frossard was able to continue her research on the concept of individuality and on the way in which it gets fragmented and reinvented across time and experience.
