Wednesday Addams is an exploration into the world of gazers and our need to believe in something.
Inspired by Braco, a 'gazer' who heals believers with a simple look. This evolving experiment is about the silent moment amongst the screams. It’s about seeing and being present for a brief moment.
The aim is to seduce strangers and friends into a world of worship.
What would happen if five minutes of silence took over you?
What would happen if the only place to look was into someone’s eyes?
What would make you start to believe?
