His tranquil gaze

Digital video projection with audio and headphones.


In this haven for some men, the loudness of the environment drowned his disturbances and provided him with a quietude that solaced him, and with tranquility that embraced his gaze.

His tranquil gaze is a visual representation of my experience of revisiting the most common place that my father would go to in order to escape the loudness of a family – the coffee shops. It is a haven that many have embraced, and five years after having left my father, I did too.
