Rest Your Eyes is a transmedia installation, conceived during the first year of the pandemic, consisting of a video projection of muted news broadcast, together with two sets of stereo speakers diffusing the sound from multilingual all-news web radio stations.
The projected news images have been blurred and made unrecognizable through a projector filter created by the artist, becoming disturbing yet familiar like the overlapped, distant, and distorted chronicles coming from the audio speakers.
