Sculpture & Photography > The Gaze

The Gaze is a video portrait series of different queer individuals that explores a silent yet powerful gesture of communication. In each portrait, the subject makes continuous eye contact for 10 seconds, looking directly into the camera, and hence the photographer, and the viewer. This particular number derives from statistical data, which claims that 10 seconds is the average amount of continuous eye contact an individual can receive without feeling awkward.
