negotiate, a video piece, is divided into a grid of six cells – each containing an image – of a passenger’s eyes.  These eyes are ‘framed’ as a place of connection or avoidance in public space.  The eyes also provide action – moving carefully and quickly, across the screen. The grid amplifies the isolation and compartmentalization.  It also adds humor – evoking a game-show format.
