The Eye

Looking is another important concept that creates a bridge between the two works.
In Dicta I, the narrator is depicted bluntly staring out of the screen with grotesque fake eyes painted on his face. Here the idea was to further deconstruct authority. In Dicta II, one of the main intentions was to make it more difficult for the camera to get a clear picture. I tried several ways of obscuring its view, but finally decided not to go with anything mechanical, gimmicky or theatrical. Instead I simply switched lenses trying several and mainly using a zoom lens, which from so close prevented the camera from seeing clearly.
