Blog Fest B

I have been paying attention more to eyes and eye contact. Its been said “eyes are the windows to the soul,” and they are. Eyes and eye contact can tell you so much about a person and their situation. In art the viewer only sees what is in the pictures, but the eyes can make them question what else it there? 
There are 3 types of eye contact: 
  1. Direct Eye Contact: With this you can show strong emotions and have a one on one connection with the subject. 
  2. Eye Contact Between Subjects: With this there is eye contact between two people. The view feels more as though they are looking in, not as “involved” with the subject. This also shows a relationship between subjects, whether happy or mad. 
  3. No Eye Contact: This puts the viewer at a “observers” point and it is as if they are getting a glimpse into a private moment. This also makes the viewer question what more is there?
