Exhibiting Concern / Two Studies

Two video studies that question the act of being seen and its gendered experience.

The artist is attempting to explore how gaze (the act of being seen) varies according to who is looking.

In the first study, the group of young women observe one another in silence. Their gaze is structured, attentive, and directed towards themselves, whereas in the second video study, the viewer is presented with what seems to be a bored and disinterested young white male who could not care less about being filmed.

The artist allows viewers to draw their own conclusions as to what mental processes are at work in these characters.
