Only the Envelope (OTE) combines research methodologies to investigate the ways we share personal information in the public sphere. In this exposition, we interpret audiovisual documents generated by eye-tracking technology within an artistic research context. The artist (and co-author of this paper), Vahri McKenzie, created a performance for a gallery space, in which a ‘scientist’ offered visitors the opportunity to be involved in an ‘experiment’, in which they were invited to view an original video while wearing Tobii Pro Glasses 2, a wireless eye-tracking device. The artist employed an assistant, Rachelle Rechichi, to play the role of the ‘scientist’ Svetlana, who gave her single-character performance to each visitor to the installation work. Rechichi is a writer and musician who had received training in the use of Tobii Pro Glasses 2.
