Watch

single channel sound + video composition

51:32 minutes

 

Using only her eyes to “play” the composition that Asgary improvisationally recorded, the title “Watch” can refer to either the action of keeping a close view upon a subject to be observed, or, to an object that is worn to keep measurement of time that is unaffected by the wearer’s activities. Staring straight into the camera for the duration of the 51:32 minute performance, at times Asgary’s eyes remain solitary and unblinking for as long as possible, while at other times, her eyes are joined by a sea of other eyes--all her own, and all in time with the composition.
