Danny Kaye's Eyes
1992, 14:00 minutes, colour, English
In Danny Kaye's Eyes, the viewer becomes a world traveller on a simulated odyssey through cathode touch stones ranging from art, to religion, to parallel and unparallel universes, Jesus, a variety of paradises, and television itself, a rich, subtle and slightly foreboding web of references.
In this environment, content is simultaneous with form. Quickly, television's strobe effect slows our brain waves into alpha or theta, reproducing the state preliminary to deep sleep. While reproducing the physiological effect of television, Danny Kaye's Eyes leaves us no doubt about what we're watching: not reality, or a faithful reproduction thereof, but a fluid envelope of dreams, which are simultaneously wet and haunted.
