Suspended in a state of perpetual re-entry. With an iPhone camera positioned underneath me, I contemplate the relevancy of intimacy and liveness while questioning the role of the screen as either a barrier or a mediator in this exchange. Broadcasting out to a Zoom room that my live audience is in, they watch me both on their phones and in the physical space we temporarily share. A meditation on the difference. An invitation to an audience to question, when presented with both, what takes priority.
Perspective box is the original name of the Peep Show that had nothing to do with sensuality and everything to do with spectacle, alternative world building and viewing. Our phones are our modern day perspective boxes in which we perceive and are perceived in return in a reciprocal exchange, a feedback loop of flesh, liveness, and gaze.
