Eye Contact with Strangers Experiment
There is something so powerful and moving when you maintain eye contact. This is something that many of us avoid. I can recall my father’s dislike for extended eye contact as he felt it was ‘aggressive’. However, it’s clear to me now, especially in my line of work, that eye contact is critical. Of course, you don’t need to maintain eye contact to the extent that they do in the video in everyday situations, but it just shows how moving the experience can be. There is something about it that makes you feel vulnerable and yet totally understood at the same time.
Where has the human connection gone in our big cities? In this public experiment, we discover what happens when we intentionally share eye contact with strangers…We had no idea how quickly things would escalate!
