‘wide-awake’ sleeping mask

or ‘Sleep with one eye open’…’sleep walking’? …’seeing through the eyes of the computer?’ see as computers do? digitally enabling the unconscious?

technically —

I’m thinking of having a live performance of someone napping in the studio wearing a custom iPhone holding sleeping mask.

The tentative technical plan is to have a native app running full screen on the phone tracking people watching the sleeping person through the front view camera surreptitiously turned on the entire time. The eyes on display would react to the environment’s people and optical flow…..potentially….either way…we will see…. Apple’s core ML has some finicky aspects to it.
