and all watched over by machines of loving grace
Two video monitors display human eyes that lock onto viewers and track them as they move. Initially almost comic, the installation gradually reveals itself as an unsettling comment on the ubiquitous nature of the contemporary labyrinth of surveillance technology. It’s a digitally driven stare, implacably observant and eerily blank. Created by Althea Thauberger, Donna Szoke and Ricarda McDonald.
