My heart belongs to San Francisco -- but that doesn't mean I can't have a love affair on the side. This is a San Franciscan's perspective of the people and place that make New York City.

The series comprising two dresses, made of photoluminescent thread and eye tracking technology, is activated by spectators' gaze. A photograph is said to be “spoiled” by blinking eyes – here however, the concept of presence and of disappearance are questioned, as the experience of chiaroscuro (clarity/obscurity) is achieved through an unfixed gaze.
La série de 2 robes, faite de fils photoluminescents, utilisant la technologie oculométrique, est activée par le regard du spectateur.
