SELF A, the simplest of the wall hanging SELF ( ) series, consists of a square with cylindrical eyepiece that attracts the eye. Depending on which eye takes precedence, there is but a vague notion of perhaps a side of a neck or the very corner of a mouth and cheek but nevertheless our eyes butt up against abstract flesh. Almost instantaneously seeing and movement are linked—a live circuit is noted. We are being monitored and the peripheral space presently occluded from view wells up as soft paranoia. Our self is…not Easy. (See SELF ( ) series here for a more thorough description of the interplay between the individual SELF components).
