A computer program plays two videos, one of a mouth and the other of an eye, forwards and backwards at random intervals. The program also links the videos so that the eye looks at the mouth whenever the mouth speaks. The piece explores the self-censorship that results from intensive self-scrutiny. A fragmented mouth struggles to articulate on one screen but stutters and is silenced by nervous glances from the eye on the other screen.
