Eye Watching

1984, 7:22 min, color, sound

The magnified, close-up image of a staring eye, juxtaposed with amplified ambient sounds, is the focus of Eye Watching. By isolating the act of seeing, Hoover creates a metaphorical study of voyeurism and observation, as the eye responds to passing shadows and the external sounds.
