Drop-in between 10am and 2pm to experience this performance art event!

When was the last time you looked someone in the eyes… for longer than you scroll through Instagram? OPTIC is a performance art installation exploring intimacy and connection in our contactless world thanks to technology and COVID-19.

The invitation: Share at least 2-minutes of your day with The Artist. Sit or stand opposite The Artist and look into their eyes without talking. The Artist will do the same. If laughter comes let it. If tears come… let them. Stay for as long as you need, look beyond the uncomfortable.

Will you come and join them?

Inspired by ‘The Artist is Present’ a work by Marina Abramović, OPTIC reimagines Marina’s provocation in a world with COVID-19, contactless everything, and excessive screen-time. Take a moment to look up from the screen and connect, without talking, with another human.

Come and be acknowledge, be seen.

A note on accessibility: Cable Car Museum is wheelchair accessible. The Artist will sit if you choose to. The Artist can adjust the experience for visually impairment visitors to include synchronised breathing or hand-holding as the form of ‘connection.’

This event is COVID-19 Alert Level II friendly.
