“eyes” is an exploration in to the gaze between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal men and women. This video recontextualizes representations from Hollywood films of the relationships created by colonialism between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples. It looks to complicate understandings of the power dynamics of colonizer and colonized and how this plays out through sexuality and intimate personal communication. With a smooth R n B sound the artist has worked to open up these images for new interpretations leaving the question of where the power lies unanswered.
