Abstract:

The Gaze of the Other examines processes of travel/migration and imagemaking
in terms of “the gaze”. This supporting paper considers theories of
identity and the gaze in the making of a digital media art installation. I investigate
the process of being seen as the ‘other’ when moving between cultures, focusing
on filmmaker and theorist Trinh T. Minh-Ha concepts of identity and
displacement. Post-colonial and cinematic theory on ideas of ‘anti-film’, the gaze,
and voyeurism are also considered. Including digital video projection and
electronic sensors, the installation explores multiple layers of the gaze in a form
of peepshow with a live-display of the viewer in the process of looking; in this
construct, “otherness” becomes unstable. The installation evokes a place between
older experimental film methods and new online, digital media, between older
understandings of migration and newer conditions of multiculturalism and
globalization.
