In the Planet of the Eye: Installation Documentation

1984, 5:15 min, color, sound

In the Planet of the Eye is the second part of Myers' installation series of the same title. Structured on ritualized, universal gestures and signs, this work resonates with suggestions of mythic symbols and archetypes. Woven in a rapidly paced collage and set to a rhythmic soundtrack, the imagery — the silhouette of a man gesturing in an archway, pre-lingual symbols of natural elements, a skeletal figure, and the ocean — suggests the metaphysical and the unconscious.
