Return the Eye is a project that combines installation, text, sound, and video, with a remote viewing system that telematically conjoins viewers. These works consider visibility, the elastic ontology of virtual images and the weaponization of optical technologies.

An online experience, Return the Eye collects user data generated by visitors, which then enact audio-visual transformations in real time. Simultaneously, three user-controlled cameras situated in the gallery operate as a portal to surveil installed objects referencing machine intelligence, ecology, and state violence.

As an extremely long-form composition, sonic parameters are shaped by user interaction with the website (clicks, click+drag, mouse location, what you're clicking on, phone movement). Our hope is that people synchronize their visits to the website with others, as the sonic output of this is something like a collaborative, networked synthesizer, where multiple people shape different parameters of the sound simultaneously.

Twitch, where the live video content is embedded from, is currently testing a feature that may interrupt the viewing experience. If this popup appears, click the volume icon in the bottom left, and you will be able to close it.

Consider

  • moving your mouse slowly to different parts of the screen, holding different click combinations, and listening for changes
  • opening multiple browser windows to increase your access to sonic parameters
  • changing your USER ID via the top right menu - this will change the sonic parameters you affect
  • clicking multiple times on different items on the works list/selected resources list
  • leaving the website on as background sounds. You can then modulate this by eg. using your phone's accelerometer remotely, manipulating the website itself as needed, or being surprised when others play with the site
