Saccade (2010) is an image-processing system addressing photographic memory and the individuated, subjective nature of looking. A false camera (implemented in software) recreates the shifting gaze of the viewer, dramatizing and recreating the fixations and saccadic jumps of the eye as it looks around within an image. Driven with gaze-data from an infra-red eye-tracking system, this program re-stages the particular movements and fixations of the viewer’s eye as they consider a series of photos, reanimating the process of looking in endless suspension on the gallery wall.
