“Staring Contest” was created in 2009 and is a video installation consisting of two videos. Each video is of a man staring directly into the camera without blinking for a duration of 25 minutes (the blinks have been digitally removed during the editing process), at which point the videos loop back to the beginning. For theinstallation, two television sets are placed directly across from each other at a distance of approximately six feet. Each tv plays one of the videos so that the two subjects appear to be infinitely staring into each other’s eyes.
