“all is familiar and the entire scene is regulated by my intentionality and my point-of-view. However, suddenly, a face appears that turns towards me and stares at me. Now I am the object of the Other’s gaze and the target of unknowable desires and judgments. I am no longer the eye or ‘I’ of consciousness, that is, I am no longer the one that sees what I want to see, but rather I am seen in a way that I don’t want to be seen.” – Hanjo Berressem http://ift.tt/1Q19VOz
