Staring Contest

March 2013 - Nashville, TN

What would it mean to stare at a machine and have it stare back?

Do we not initiate some sort of mutual gaze when we point a lens out ourselves?

Could we ever win a staring contest with a machine, entangled as we are with human needs (like water)?

Could we ever outperform a machine designed specifically for the task?

Would we want to?
