This work was part of the group show, I/O, at the EyeLevel Gallery in Halifax and represents the culmination of an electronics residency at the Centre For Art Tapes where I was selected as one of six participants.

For this exhibition I constructed a full bodied “figure” with a moving/motorized video projector in place of the head.  Extreme close-up footage of my blinking, twitching eyeball was thrown onto the ceiling and carefully concealed electronic proximity sensors were placed on either side of the “figure”.  When a viewer approaches the work the sensors immediately react and cause the projector/head to rotate 90 degrees left or right to track the individual.  As a consequence of this rotation, my eyeball projection tracks across the ceiling and onto the gallery walls.
