Raquel Kogan: Art That Looks Back At You

About the Video

Brazilian digital artist Raquel Kogan thinks technology has given mankind new heads, new hands, and new feet. As a former architect, Kogan uses these "new" body parts as her building blocks, borrowing audience's movements, weight, and images in her works.

In our behind-the-scenes video, we examine Kogan’s latest installation o.lhar (The Look), which weaves recordings of the viewers’ eyes into a digital quilt that stares back at the viewer.
