          Abstract

          This paper explores the idea of an individual’s sense of awareness when moving through a specific space. The work entitled: Who’s Watching? is a feminist artwork, an audio/visual, site-specific experience, meant to prompt the individual to acknowledge their true surroundings. This project is intended to foster a discussion on how, in the area of visual arts, the application of performance art and film can increase a discourse on feminism by creating both physically and conceptually interesting and thought provoking perspectives.

          Looking at society today, there are two types of gaze, the male gaze and the female gaze. According to John Berger, the male and female gazes can be simplified so that men act and women appear (Berger 2008). The man’s sole purpose is to give an impression of power to others. The female gaze, however, is not necessarily in her control. A woman’s presence is apparent in everything she does, how she carries herself, her voice, her gestures, her clothes and her chosen surroundings.
