I am looking at you
Can you see?
Can you see my eyes?
@iContact: Mirror Talk is an interactive one-to-one performance.
In Mirror Talk, the brand-new start-up iContact invites you to take part in a unique experiment and contribute to the development of a cutting-edge technological solution designed to answer our growing need in inter-personal communication.
How often do you meet yourself?
How often do you meet other people?
What is the role of eye contact in these encounters?
And how does it all connect to the device laying in your pocket?
Upon entering the performance space, you will find a table with several objects and a mirror. The performer will guide you through a series of questions and tasks, culminating in a moment of shared space.
This experience is truly novel... [it] is perfect for social distancing and reflects upon our contact over the last few months through mediums such as Zoom. Be ready to look into yourself and push the boundaries in this immersive piece examining our interaction with others and ourselves
