SHY TO EYE (2019) is a project about the acknowledgement of your own impact on your surroundings.

From a distance, spectators can see two women dancing extravagantly, as if they’re completely in their own bubble. However, as the spectator comes closer, his own influence breaks the bubble of the two dancing women, and they start dancing less and less, ending in an intensive stare when the spectator comes eye to eye with them.

Being fascinated by human influence, we created this work to make viewers aware of their own influence and to provoke discussion amongst them. SHY TO EYE is a poetic approach on the endless circle of contradictions, also known as ‘Catch-22’, with interaction between viewers and two dancing women. The work was on view during the Cinedans festival at the EYE-filmmuseum in Amsterdam.
