  • Volume 38 Issue 4 - The BADFAITH machine: The phantom point of view in VR
    • Abstract: Messham-Muir, Kit
      At the 2018 Melbourne International Film Festival BADFAITH, an Australian‑based virtual reality (VR) content creation collective, premiered its latest production - a twelve‑minute VR work titled Exquisite Corpse. As the title suggests, this is a twenty‑first century rebirth of the Surrealist parlour game in which a team of collaborating artists each renders a part of a body on a folded segment of paper, working from the head down, without seeing anything of the other contributions. It is only when the paper is finally unfurled that any of the collaborators see the completed body in its entirety; bizarre, disjointed and often monstrous. When the "Pope of Surrealism" Andre Breton created exquisite corpse drawings with poet Paul Eluard or artist Valentine Hugo, their aesthetic of disjuncture resonated with the Zeitgeist of Europe between the Wars - estranged, ruptured and, similar to Berthold Brecht's photo‑epigrams and montages, "broken so that the space between things can appear." BADFAITH's Exquisite Corpse 360‑degree video shifts at right angles about its temporal axes, delivering first the head (Tony Albert), the neck (Shaun Gladwell), the heart (Natasha Pincus), the groin (Luci Schroder), the hands (Amiel Courtin‑Wilson) and the legs (Daniel Crooks). The work is curated and produced by the collective's lynchpin, Leo Faber. Evoking "punk" to describe his "slammed together" experimentation, Faber provocatively tests the limits of the emerging medium of VR. Gladwell, who began both creating VR and working with Faber and the collective in 2016, says "we came up with BADFAITH because of the reference to Jean Paul Sartre and his notion of bad faith as this kind of inauthentic movement but we also like the fact that it sounded like a '70s rock band."

  • Volume 38 Issue 4 - Metascapes, memory and spacetime: The museum and
           archive in VR
    • Abstract: Yip, Andrew
      In 'The Time Machine' (1895) by H.G. Wells, a scientist projects himself forward from Victorian London to the year 802,701, where he discovers a civilisation of futuristic, childlike adults preyed upon by a repressed, animalistic underclass. One night, under threat from the latter, he seeks refuge in a great green porcelain museum reminiscent of London's Crystal Palace, which becomes a temporary lens through which he views this dystopian future. Inside, the time‑traveller finds some things intact and others looted or destroyed. There are no books in the library or texts in the museum. He is left to form knowledge about the world from the frame of his own experience. The building is a shell that has preserved objects but not memories, and the fact of its survival has not meant the same for its cultural narratives. Nevertheless, in the year 802,701, the dynamics of the museum are the same for interstellar travellers as they were for Victorian flaneurs; it provides space and time for exploration, remembering and sometimes forgetting.

  • Volume 38 Issue 4 - Ways of (not) seeing: Structures of visibility in VR
    • Abstract: Thwaites, Denise
      John Berger's 'Ways of Seeing' provided a 1970s viewership with a critical window into Western art history's participation in broader socio‑economic and semiotic systems. Examining artefacts from fifteenth‑century painting to modern publicity, Berger's series for the BBC explored the relational and historically contingent nature of seeing, famously stating that "perspective makes the eye the centre of the visible world." Exposing how an era's visual culture articulates and responds to material socio‑political dynamics, his analysis implied a necessary inverse in the artefacts and traits that go relatively unseen due to our historically contingent optics. Berger's approach thus begs the question: How might emergent visual regimes enabled by today's virtual reality (VR) technologies reflect a perspective that is specific to our era' And as a consequence, how might VR equally inaugurate a way of (not) seeing' This conversation is broached by contemporary artists who are testing the capacities of VR in a myriad of ways.

  • Volume 38 Issue 4 - The virtuous politics of Alejandro Inarritu's Carne y
           Arena
    • Abstract: Dziekan, Vince
      Contemporary filmmakers and visual artists are embracing the potential of immersive digital technology to tell stories in powerful, new and affective ways. Drawing upon my first‑hand exhibition‑based encounter with filmmaker Alejandro Inarritu's celebrated Carne y Arena this article extrapolates how the nature of its immersive experience extends the narrative horizon of virtual reality (VR) well beyond the cinematic to the cinematographic, and onto the curatorial design of exhibition space itself.

  • Volume 38 Issue 4 - Against realism: The badly rendered potential of VR
    • Abstract: Haig, Ian
      One of the great potentials of VR is in the glitch, the error, corrupted data and bad compression. All of which is wonderfully at odds and runs counter to the standard (yawn) cultural narrative of VR as a wondrous new medium of infinite possibilities and lifelike immersion. Isn't it the job of artists to be disruptive' Particularly when it comes to technology like VR which is often hardwired with a particular cultural narrative, before one even unboxes it. The glitch, together with badly rendered graphics, fake looking 3D spaces and animation explores the disappointment and failures of such technologies, which is certainly more critical, self‑reflexive and playful than to buy wholesale into the current commercial hype surrounding VR.

  • Volume 38 Issue 4 - The distributed virtual: Jill Scott's Eskin4 and other
           electronic environments
    • Abstract: La Frenais, Rob
      Along with other anachronistic histories of the future like the flying car and the robot butler, the human hybrid with the massive helmet and gloves is back, although the goggles used now are smaller than those unwieldy headsets that turned humans into techno‑monsters. Two years ago I experienced a new craze in Mexico City - a virtual reality party organised by Gibran Morgado. Like those ubiquitous images from the 1950s of cinema audiences with 3D specs, the sight of half the attendees wearing VR goggles and balancing drinks evoked a "Back to the Future" moment.

  • Volume 38 Issue 4 - Brenda Laurel's placeholder: In dreams everybody flies
           their own way
    • Abstract: Evans, Claire L
      I run like I'm climbing an invisible staircase, in long loping steps. This may be due to prolonged childhood exposure to Saturday morning cartoons; other people soar like Superman, arms extended, or like soap bubbles, floating above the landscape of waking life. But Brenda Laurel doesn't fly at all. She swims.

  • Volume 38 Issue 4 - Artificial imagination: Deepfakes from latent space
    • Abstract: Dockray, Sean
      By now, you've probably witnessed a deepfake: a synthetic image or video produced by machine learning processes that appears to be real. These images have naturally led to some concern that elections might be swung or geopolitical rifts opened by some believable, but false evidence. A confession - a smoking gun - manufactured to manipulate public sentiment and destabilise democracies. So far, deepfakes have been as benign as a missile test. They are typically framed by the story of their own production, serving both to showcase the power of artificial intelligence and as a warning about the images to come.

  • Volume 38 Issue 4 - Meet Lisa Walker in her workshop: VR in the museum
    • Abstract: Olsen, Justine; Donald, Prue
      The New Zealand jeweller Lisa Walker sits in her apron at her work bench. The surface before her is packed with an array of tools: a drill, a glue gun, pliers, paint brushes. The shelves behind her overflow with fossicked, found materials and objects. She reaches for the taxidermied ducklings sourced from an online auction site and explains, "They have an awful history and reason for existing. I'm intrigued by making them into a beautiful, cute, fluffy necklace. So there are two extremes happening and I wanted to test how it would be to throw them together."

  • Volume 38 Issue 4 - Eugenie Lee's seeing is believing: VR in pain
           management
    • Abstract: DeLosAngeles, Dylan
      According to artist Eugenie Lee, "VR is the ultimate empathetic tool." Eugenie Lee's Seeing is Believing (2016-18) is an ambitious work that has undergone significant development since it was first exhibited in The Patient curated by Bec Dean for the UNSW Galleries in 2016. In its most recent iteration at MOD., the outcome of a residency at the University of South Australia, the work has enlarged its script and process of engaging with participants in a 1:1 performance contributing to the analysis and experience of pain.

  • Volume 38 Issue 3 - Sublime plight: Richard Mosse, Ai Weiwei and the
           social turn
    • Abstract: Hill, Wes
      Some part of me wishes I was profoundly moved by Richard Mosse's video installation, Incoming (2014-17), at the National Gallery of Victoria's 2017 Triennale. Although most viewers were captivated by it, I felt uncomfortably cynical, not indifferent to the suffering it purported to show but to its overt use of theatrics. While I can appreciate Mosse's ghost‑like imagery of refugees who appear at once distant and intimate, I think the emotional core of the work owes more to collaborator Ben Frost's lively electronic soundtrack, which is ultimately manipulative in its effect. This is the dilemma of politically‑motivated, pathos‑laden work: how do we negatively judge something that has such a good heart' Confronted with Mosse's images of a child's autopsy whose body has decomposed, it is hard not to feel callous when judging such things based on formal superficialities.

  • Volume 38 Issue 3 - Living and dying under surveillance: Xu Bing's
           Dragonfly eyes
    • Abstract: Grbich, Sasha
      A person walks alone through the night in a city street. Without warning they teeter sideways, slipping noiselessly into a body of water. There is neither slow close‑up, nor the dramatic fight against death Hollywood Cinema has led me to expect. The water soon closes over and settles. The pause that follows the quieting scene gives way to the horror of realising that I have just watched someone die.

  • Volume 38 Issue 3 - Inhuman flow: Censorship and art in the two Chinas
    • Abstract: Jorgensen, Darren
      "Well, Dorothy, you're not in Kansas anymore!" Luise Guest reminds herself in 'Half the Sky', her book on Chinese women artists. She might well be writing about Australia's very current dilemma of being forced to rethink its place in the world as China comes to dominate the economy and politics of East Asia. While politicians tread lightly around Chinese influence and the US alliance, certain quarters including the Australian media have been near hysterical about the decline of the Anglosphere, and the rise of a foreign power whose language and values are often at odds with their own.2 In the middle of this are the artists who work between China and Australia, who may as well be travelling between planets as between countries and cultures. For while these artists have, for the most part, adopted the liberal ideas of the contemporary artworld, in China they remain at risk of being censored and imprisoned. They cannot play out the fantasy of freedom and social mobility that Western artists entertain without putting themselves at significant risk.

  • Volume 38 Issue 3 - Foreign returned between expatriate and repatriate in
           Mumbai
    • Abstract: Shingade, Balamohan
      Byculla is a neighbourhood in South Mumbai, the fourth station on the central railway line. A century ago, when the megalopolis of Mumbai was the seven islands of Bombay, Byculla was won from the sea as part of the great reclamation scheme. I find my exact location on a series of topographic maps displayed at the Dr Bhau Daji Lad Museum in Byculla, Mumbai, ten minutes from the railway station, through the city's largest vegetable market, and into the grounds shared by the museum and the zoo. These surrounds, I see on the maps, would have once been an extension to the fishing island of Mazagaon.

    • Abstract: Thomas, Nicholas
      Over the last fifty years, modern and contemporary art in Oceania has emerged, not just as one movement but many. Across the Pacific, new expressions of customary practice, from weaving to tattooing, have diverse local lives, while increasingly accomplished artists in installation, digital media, performance, adornment, photography and painting have gained prominence and international recognition. But this history has been notably discontinuous and uneven.

  • Volume 38 Issue 3 - Global flows in Ruth Watson's Geophagy
    • Abstract: Phillips, Bruce E
      The late geographer Doreen Massey once wrote that "the world is specific and structured by inequalities. It matters who moves and how you move."1 New Zealand artist Ruth Watson has spent her 34‑year career unravelling the disparities in agency that Massey alludes to. Preoccupied for the most part in an examination of cartography, its history and politics, her practice has more recently led her to explore the mapping of our environmental crisis and the systems of power that govern international flows of people. Her elaborate installation 'Geophagy' (2017), the focus of a forthcoming publication, furthers this thread of enquiry as arguably her most ambitious and complex to date and provides a nuanced glimpse into the enormity of our current global situation.

  • Volume 38 Issue 3 - Fragmentation and complexity in crossings by Wei Leng
           Tay
    • Abstract: Nelson, Roger
      "When we first met, he had prepared several pages of text about his life. He had even checked words in the dictionary," explains Wei Leng Tay. The artist is speaking about an unnamed octogenarian man, whose recorded voice forms a major component of 'And the first chapter it begins with the horses' (2017-18). An installation comprising a 32‑minute video projection of waves lapping on sand, projected onto and through a jute sack and accompanied by an audio soundtrack, the work is the second of four separate iterations of Tay's 'Crossings', curated by Siddharta Perez for the NUS Museum, National University of Singapore.

  • Volume 38 Issue 3 - Ryoji Ikeda: The aesthetics of data flow
    • Abstract: Palmer, Daniel
      Ominous, disorienting and relentless, incorporating strobe effects and sonic frequencies on the edge of human hearing, the experience of Ryoji Ikeda's art is often described as a kind of data sublime. Evoking a posthuman, post‑nature universe, the technical virtuosity, spectacular scale and intensity of his installations draws crowds wherever they are shown. Ikeda's appeal to institutions competing for attention in the experience economy is obvious. As a typical promotion reads: "Ikeda's work overwhelms the viewer - don't miss this chance to see it in person." In other words, even as prolific documentation inevitably accompanies his work, Instagram cannot replace the physical encounter of being exposed to it, because the immersive scale and soundscape are so integral to the encounter. Tellingly, Ikeda started out as a DJ in Tokyo, and he continues to orchestrate singular experiences for visitors en masse on a global circuit, where works can be re‑versioned to suit the venue.

  • Volume 38 Issue 3 - Juilee Pryor: The army of unrequited dreams
    • Abstract: Finegan, Ann
      The figure of the army haunts the imaginary, alternatively conjuring hope and despair. For many it can embody the most terrifying of human flows wrought on a path of hellish destruction, while for others it symbolises the righteous fury of moral redemption. Juilee Pryor's multi‑layered installation, 'The Army of Unrequited Dreams', captures this ambivalence and dares to merge the fantastical imaginings of childhood and war through an elaborate installation that couples the ornate details of the Victorian era with the extravagant fancies of its children's authors like J.M. Barrie. Chillingly contemporary in its allusions to the captured and weaponised children of struggling African states from Sierra Leone to Sudan, her rag tag army of salvaged toys, brandishing weaponry, serves as an allegory for current states of war.

           terra nullius
    • Abstract: Lehman, Greg
      A couple of years ago I quipped to my friend Alec Coles, who had recently taken up the position of CEO at the West Australian Museum, that the spirit of 'terra nullius' lurks beneath the floorboards of every museum and art gallery in Australia. Apparently, he has dined out on this slightly parsimonious comment once or twice since. Alec likes to raise the stakes in discussions with his colleagues about the responsibilities that history demands of them as leaders of major collecting institutions - each with its own problematic legacy in terms of respecting and representing Indigenous culture.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - Four thousand fish: Our language of memory
    • Abstract: McDaniel, Emily
      In early 2018 I curated 'Four Thousand Fish', a large‑scale participatory art project for the Sydney Festival that told the story of British colonists hauling an excessive four thousand fish from 'Warrane' (Sydney Harbour) in one day in 1790. The colonists' action disrupted the delicate ecosystem that the accomplished Eora fisherwomen of 'Warrane' had preserved for millennia, and undermined the status of women as the main food providers for family and community.

    • Abstract: Gilchrist, Stephen
      While walking through the Esplanade Park in the port city of Fremantle in the late 1990s, I saw something on a monument that I had not noticed before. Surrounded by towering Norfolk Island Pines is a carved granite monument to the explorer, politician and pastoralist Maitland Brown (17 July 1843 - 8 July 1905). Stained by bore water, the six‑metre‑high monument principally commemorates Brown's command of a search party for the explorers Frederick Panter, James Harding and William Goldwyer who are memorialised in the same monument with smaller bas‑relief sculptures.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - Songlines, museology and contemporary Aboriginal art
    • Abstract: Poll, Matt
      Long before contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island art transformed Australian art history through its proactive assertion of the sovereignty of Australian First Nations people, museums in Australia had been constructing and distributing a version of the Aboriginal past that was entirely authored and often misrepresented by non‑Indigenous people. Following the self‑determination movements of the 1970s, artists and communities have successfully asserted the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people to depict and represent their culture on their own terms. This transformation has come about through the work and struggles of many artists, activists and curators. The results of their arduous fight for change can be read through several recent precedents that signal an altogether different understanding of how Aboriginal philosophies can enlighten audiences today.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - Archie Moore: Daze of our lives
    • Abstract: Moore, Archie
      You grew up in a dry, flat and hot land way out West. It seemed to you the furthest out West you could get but this place is only 297 kilometres west of Brisbane. The earliest memory you can recall is of a kindergarten friend relinquishing their golden glitter‑encrusted, cardboard crown in an exchange for your broken one and quite possibly to stop you embarrassing yourself - and everyone else! - who just wanted to get on with the Christmas play. You didn't know something so banal could be so seductive, or that another's kind gesture could placate you so instantly. The memory of this incident may be vivid because it is steeped in frequent viewings of faded and stained images from the family album, for there are very few other memories over the next decade. So, you think now, maybe you are remembering the remembering of an image that has replaced the event. Instead of recalling that day with eyes closed, it is the photograph that has overwritten your memory.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - Don't scare me, coloniser: Empowerment through digital
           innovation
    • Abstract: Anderson, Susie
      Museums are fraught spaces. The knowledge they hold is critical for us, as Indigenous people. It's where I've seen objects from my country for the first time. But that they "hold knowledge" does not convey enough of the dilemma of encountering our histories in compromised institutional spaces. There's a scene in Black Panther, the 2018 film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, that summarises this dilemma. The antagonist Erik Killmonger is at a British Museum looking at African objects in a glass cabinet. "I'll be taking these off your hands pretty soon," he says to the curator. She protests that he does not have permission. He replies, "You think your ancestors had permission when they took these off my people'" Permission was not asked for, nor given. Objects were taken. Lives were lost. Something made by ancestors may never be touched by a descendant. There's a certain humanity lost forever.

    • Abstract: Russell‑Cook, Myles
      In all societies it is polite to introduce yourself properly to your audience, your host and, others. In Aboriginal culture introductions and identification are essential. People want to know who they are meeting, where they come from and how they are, or may be related. It is more than a formality: it is a cultural protocol.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - Brad Darkson: Ritual space
    • Abstract: Falcinella, Marie
      As an artist of Narungga and Anglo descent, Brad Darkson, has long been fascinated by the status of objects and artefacts held in museums and considered to be culturally significant. Recognising the contradiction between this status as a revered object and their ultimate use value, Darkson writes "Ritualistic objects can be considered to foster a transcendent experience, and necessarily fall short in reproducing the same experience when displayed for consumption." The object becomes a representation of an action from the past, a mere relic of the ephemeral trace of something that no longer exists. As he says further, "It becomes irrelevant what the original custodians intended. Artefacts are made public and deemed 'significant'. How that object then performs in galleries and museums does not necessarily align with original intent." While acknowledging the complex and problematic nature of collecting institutions, it is the physical placement of objects within this secular space that is of most interest to him. The display of hundreds of artefacts is designed to engage the viewing public, who more often than not move quickly from one to the next, impacting the performative role of the cultural object in facilitating and registering a belief system as transcendent experience.

  • Volume 38 Issue 2 - Katie West: Living well
    • Abstract: West, Katie
      'Muhlu' means "cool time" and 'garwarrn' means "hot time" in Yindjibarndi language. During muhlu I work with a hot natural dyeing process, collecting leaves, flowers and bark, to bundle up in fabric, prepared to be placed in a pot of water and left to boil on the fire. During the season there are many fires and many resulting pieces of fabric infused with place, the colour and smell of the country where I have been walking and collecting. The slower process of solar dying happens in 'garwarrn', when it is too hot to have a fire. Once again leaves, flowers and bark are bundled together, but this time are placed in glass jars of water. The jars are sealed and left in a sunny spot. Over a number of weeks the tannins migrate from plant material to organic fabric fibres.

      "I don't know" sings the chorus in response as Madison Bycroft rallies off quip after quip the characteristics of a mollusc life-world while occupying a mollusc-like dress at the back of the mollusc-like stage. What this lecture-performance Soft Bodies (2017) addresses is a problem that faces much of the arts and humanities in the twenty-first century: a grappling with the ontological becomings and tentacular thinking, of those things that are and are not us.1 As science continues to illuminate the molecules and viruses that make up our bodies, we are plunged into a world where ideas about what distinguishes us as humans (and our understanding of what a human is) have become increasingly vague. As environmental philosopher Timothy Morton avows in solidarity, we are more non-human than we are human.2 So what happens when boundaries that previously demarcated one thing from another disintegrate' And what do molluscs have to do with it'

    • Abstract: Downey, Georgina
      There has been a significant increase in the visibility of horses in recent art. This is in spite of the fact that horse power was replaced by horsepower over a century ago, and the presence of horses in daily life has been limited to the arenas of leisure or sport for the few. The phantasmagorical return of what is extinct or absent from our lives was something John Berger warned about in his essay from 1977 "Why Look at Animals'": "In the last two centuries, animals have gradually disappeared. Today we live without them. And in this new solitude, anthropomorphism makes us doubly uneasy."

  • Volume 38 Issue 1 - Surreal conjunctions in sartorial contexts: A testing
           ground for human-animal relations
    • Abstract: Finegan, Ann
      Mella Jaarsma's Dogwalk engages tropes of contemporary haute couture to speculate on the broader ethics of our engagement with animals. The catwalks of fashion might seem a far remove from animal welfare and more philosophical discussions around our being with animals, yet there has long been a rich tradition combining animals and couture. The history of painting contains numerous examples of fashionable aristocrats showing off their animals in Arcadian settings for picnics or walks. Sartorial display affirmed wealth and class. The inclusion of treasured pets in family portraits indicated a moral generosity that extended towards fellow creatures and could be read as a form of propaganda consolidating the wealthy patron within a broader world of affective ties. In a Europe in which political and social power was largely based on rural wealth, the embrace of the animal within these paintings signified the broader moral responsibility of the master to the living beings within his domain of care.

  • Volume 38 Issue 1 - Trevor "Turbo" brown and company
    • Abstract: Morrow, Christine
      Vivid and arresting paintings of Australian wildlife are the hallmark of an artist known mononymously as Turbo. Born Trevor Brown (1967-2017) in Mildura, he took up painting in his mid-thirties after he had relocated to Melbourne. He rapidly gained critical and commercial attention for works using a quick and direct application of pure colour, bursting with raw energy, and featuring a varied cast of native fauna. So exclusive-obsessive, even-was his portrayal of animals that there arose a kind of origin story explaining his single-mindedness: "Uncle Herb [P]atten, the man he loves as a father, once asked Brown why he only painted animals. He replied that when he was fifteen and living on the Mildura streets and the Murray River bank, the animals were his only friends." Other explanations Turbo gave for his choice of subject matter included, "Animals are my friends. They come to me in my dreams" and "When I paint, I feel like I'm in the Dreamtime and can see all the animals that live there."

      Sometimes the truth is impossible to hear. At year's end, dinner table conversation turns from climate change to mass extinctions, and people consult their pocket encyclopaedias for facts.

In Te Ara ecologist Richard Holdaway tells the numbers more clearly: 50% of vertebrate fauna gone in the 750 years since human arrival in New Zealand.

    • Abstract: Creed, Barbara
      Contemporary animal theory confronts some of the most profound issues of our time-what it means to be human in the Anthropocene, anthropocentrism and the mass extinction of species, the rights of nonhuman animals and the future of ethical thinking. Artists, writers and filmmakers explore these and related issues in works that are experimental and challenging, testifying to this time of crisis. These include Michael Cook's human-nature studies (Civilised, 2012; Invasion, 2017), Janet Laurence's work on extinction (After Eden, 2012), Patricia Piccinini's exploration of the posthuman (Evolution, 2009), Sue Coe's bearing witness to slaughterhouses (Dead Meat, 1996; Porkopolis, 2001), J.M. Coetzee's writings on animals and ethics (Elizabeth Costello, 2003, Disgrace, 1999) and Nicolas Philibert's indictment of zoos in his documentary, (N nette, 2010).

    • Abstract: Allatson, Paul; Connor, Andrea
      From the early 1970s, driven by drought and degradation of interior wetlands, the Australian White Ibis (Threskiornis moluccus) began migrating to the nation's coastal cities, towns and inland centres from north Queensland through to Perth. Ibis have flourished in urban spaces, where there is a ready food supply guaranteed by our endemic over-consumption. Their robust colonisation and presence has garnered the bird a reputation as unwelcome pests and interlopers, reflected in the quotidian idiom: dumpster diver, flying rat, tip turkey, pest of the sky, trash vulture, dump chook, bin chicken, bin chook.

      Four humanimals creep, crawl, sniff and moan their way through a seated audience, towards an empty performance area which awaits their presence. Snorting and snuffling is audible as the liminal creatures rub themselves against giggling audience members, rolling across laps and crawling under chairs. Their faces are painted with dark bands across the eyes-like a species of bird, bandit, or warrior. When they reach the performance area, they crouch in a circle, continuing their muffled cries as one of them stands.
