The eye reacts to the impact of light and adjusts the pupil to ensure optimum vision. The pupil widens in response to little light, in bright conditions it narrows. Drawing on a fundamental interest in examining uncontrollable physical processes, this natural mechanism was reversed in the work MYDRIASIS: the camera light goes on, reaches the eye, but nothing happens. The eye can be seen for a moment and just before the light goes out, the pupil begins to widen.
