Making Eyes - Douglas Gordon

Singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright and Douglas Gordon the darkly inventive Scottish film artist, conspired to produce these haunting tour visuals, in which Wainwright flutters his kohl-splashed eye for a camera shooting at 1,000 frames per second.  Without the maquillage, it is impossible to envisage the effect so beautifully arrived at.  Again, it is the made up face that is particularly evocative, signalling emotive conclusions that would be far more arbitary without the cosmetic construction.
