2020, Helsinki

Concept and photographer: Iida-Liina Linnea

Stop for a moment. Look into my eyes. A lot can happen in one minute.

We are rarely allowed to just gaze at the unknown without expectations and assumptions, without anything else. We live in a time where we take photographs of everything, but we might not see almost anything. This piece wants to remind you how it feels to gaze.

In this work, the photographer and the photographed one stop for a moment to share the gaze, the moment and to study each other. The piece can be executed as an independent performance and as an encounter at an event, or it can be part of Recover Laboratory’s works.
