A choreography for two imprisoned eyes shows two eyes using a beauty tool to shapen the eyelashes. A macro exposure observes the separate, slow movements of the pupils in the static frame of the beauty tool. These blown up fragmentation of a body part provokes a high level of abstraction. The eye loses its eye-dentity. The tiny metal sticks of the beauty tool may seem like prison bars; becoming an architectural magnitude. The pupils transform to ensnared creatures kept imprisoned in two separate cages; moving, sometimes slow, sometimes fast, communicating with each other – almost as if performing a zig zagging dance.
