A 2D preview of Not Eye (2013, S3D digital video, production Le Fresnoy) will be available online for streaming until December 2018.
Not Eye is a digital stereoscopic film that explores the relationship between the eye and the camera, between mind and machine. The film’s central character is a woman who has constructed a helmet fitted with two cameras, which replace her eyes. She wears her helmet in public and films everything that surrounds her. Doing so makes her feel protected from the gaze of others.

During the film we observe this woman being interviewed by an unknown man, in an exchange which suggests both therapy and interrogation. The viewer is invited to contemplate whether the woman is emotionally unstable, or is in fact making a very understandable attempt to protect herself from a surveillance-obsessed society.
