Self-portrait of an absence

Description (in English)

Self-portrait of an absence (2016) is a participative performance based on the partial visual impairment of the artist, who has a blind eye. Technically, the artwork consists of an eye-tracking system programmed to generate and process sounds according to data collected from the asynchronous movements of both eyes. The artist offers passers-by in public or semi-public spaces an observing-listening aesthetic experience under an umbrella, where sound-emitting loudspeakers are hung. The artist’s initial motivation was curiosity to discover something about the apparently random behaviour of her blind eye.
