The visible gaze, behind the mask and makeup of Venice's Carnival, has led me to a relationship game between observers. This series of photographies was displayed and catalogued in Spain last January. The writer Antonio G. Ribelles wrote in that catalogue, where talks about the symbology of the eye. The eye is recognised as a superior power in all cultures. Is the eye that sees but simultaneously it enlightens. The photographies show the desire to see without being recognised. The "wall-costume" protects you and makes you powerful for a while.
