Shifting Gaze is a film and video-art-music installation about CHOICE, DESIRE and MEMORY. Conceived and directed by Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video-artist) and created in collaboration with Erica Glyn (music production, composer and singer) and Isabelle Duverger (photography and graphic animations).  Drawing on the fragments-presence of the body, faces, urban construction, nature, textures and remains of activity,the piece navigates on a new notion of choice, linked to desire and memory, choice being the present, memory representing the past and desire, the drive for a future. What we want (desire) is connected to or conflicting with what is expected from us (identity, memory), and choice is the act upon which we build ourselves. Underneath these mirrored imageries lie many stories about limits, freedom and self-perception: stories of the mind. A shifting gaze may allow us to interpret our interactions with others, from grasping cues to understanding other people's behavior toward us. Shifting Gaze is ultimately a piece about identity, a film-installation about making choices, a memory in act.
