Blink (2013)

HD video, 4min44sec

The framework for this work is simple: stare into the lens without blinking for as long as possible until the eventual tears form and drop. Visually the site of anyone with tears in their eyes will look as if they are crying. The movement and changes in the video are minimal, all that there is to look at is a subject staring at the viewer. Ideally the viewer is staring back into my eyes, also not blinking (or not blinking that often), as they wait for something to happen.
