I LOOK TO YOU, formerly titled Unique in the Universe is a self funded art project which considers our uniqueness and our interdependence through a participatory art process which involves conversation, filming, public and online screenings, dialogues and debates.
Interdependence begins with communication and while we might not be able to undersand each others spoken or written language, we can look to each other to find trust and respect. And through this challenging, immediate interaction, with participants identified only by their eyes, we might work towards a more peaceful and cohesive society.
Eileen Haring Woods has developed this new participatory art work, the EYE TAKE, which brings together the artist and the subject for a one to one session of conversation and filming.
Individual EYE TAKE sequences are edited into short films which are projected onto buildings, . It is the quality of the light of the projected image in twilight and night time, and the gathering of friends and strangers in the democracy of public space which provokes dialogue.
Participants have included people from all walks of life, some famous, some friends and strangers.
Commissioned work includes individual EYE TAKE photographic prints of projections on the Aldeburgh Bach Lookout in Suffolk UK.
Launched at the 2014 London Art Fair, I LOOK TO YOU films have been shown at the Lookout and as part of the 2014 Interdependence Day event in Pakhuis de Zwijger, Amsterdam.
