Amalgam of Contradiction
-It is watched/It is looking back-
The human development was driven by a compulsion to see. For example, invention of a telescope and a microscope. At present, it was more sophisticated through the internet environment. The anonymous communication on the internet has danger, because it is difficult to inhibit the malicious behavior on there. In this work, A crouching person is watched and dominated by the viewer. But they notice that they are looked back by “Big eye” too at some point. I think that we must remember this “gaze” when we watch a something.
