Hidden Eyes Open Call for Art

Humans are curious – and looking into each other's lives is a source of creativity. Though we may not be aware of it, we are all voyeurs. We obtain gratification from observing others. There is excitement in looking into other people’s lives, peeking into their worlds, guessing their stories and thoughts. Through a window, behind a bush, from a bench in the park, or a table at a cafe: other people’s scenes are a pretty amazing show. We're always looking to the Other because we're storied beings – because we make sense of our lives in relation to others.  

What art emerges when you look at other people's reality? 
How does peeking at others ignite your creative process?
What emotions steer your art in the act of contemplating others?
