Video which invites us to look at the act of looking itself.

'Sivan' is a documentary video piece which diverge the gaze away from the players' movements on a soccer field, focusing instead on the facial expressions of a single viewer. Turning the camera away and fixing it on an individual character amidst the crowd serves to lure the viewer into the real drama of the event, which takes place discretely inside the mind of every fan in the gallery. 'Sivan' exists in the tension between the cinematic means that make up a structured experience and a more distant gaze that keeps the questions of authenticity and individual expression open. From within this suspense the video invites us to look at the act of looking itself.
