The piece is a magnificent installation in resolution in video, utilizing a special software connected to a eye tracker device. Sardón investigates the mutations of the contemporary gaze. Each subject establishes a route with their vision generating lines and flashes that form faces that appear inside a situation of apparent disorder. In this visual labyrinth a countenance that seems to interrogate us is formed. In a time where we are subjected to a tsunami of data, practically void of the sedimentation of nucleuses of information, the work of Mariano Sardón proposes a resolution of collective visual itineraries in an epiphany of faces subjected to the dynamic of time.
This “wall of gazes” allows a dialogue with other pieces belonging to the BEEP Collection that also explore the conceptualization of “ways of looking”. If art is a strange combination of what we see and what sees us, in that case what challenges us is a face that has no intention of petrifying us like the Medusa, rather it incites us to look upon reality in different ways.
