The Gaze of Orpheus has since been evaluated by many a philosopher and literary critic. Common analogies are made between Orpheus’s gaze and writing processes, philosophical interpretation, and artistic origins. Some of the most famous uses of the gaze of Orpheus can be found in Maurice Blanchot’s work The Gaze of Orpheus, Geoffrey Sirc’s, The Composition’s Eye/Orpheus’s Gaze/Cobain’s Journals, and Jaques Lacan’s work on the mirror stage.

Layering the matching couples, I then programmed my scanner to regard is as one hole and dust it of with the Digital ICE Technology. The visual effect of my actions, and the electronic view, produce images with digital details and a new degree of original reality. My current appropriation of footage is work in progress, and the outcome aim to keep that quality and gaze.
