Eyes Wide Shut

Laurie Simmons, a photographer, calls this project How We See. She turned women into living dolls by applying realistic makeup over their eyelids. Their eyes are shut. But in an unearthly fashion, they stare with empty gazes past the viewer. The Jewish Museum, which exibited the series, comments:

How We See draws an arc between portraits traded among classmates to the persona play that Doll Girls rapidly execute on smartphones, where the continuous feeds of Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter allow alternate versions of the self to appear, morph, and disappear.
