Nach dem Guten suchen (Looking for the good) is an interactive film, which can be controlled with the eyes. On the screen you can see various short videos with everyday sequences of actions, which run in a continuous loop and do not change without your own intervention. As soon as the user stops paying attention to the focused actions and actively searches for new details with the eyes, the content of the videos changes. In each of the approximately 150 video clips, there is a decisive frame at which the eye position is queried with an eye tracker. Immediately afterwards a new video is started with this information after the previous one has finished. The project is thus on the one hand an experimental film, but on the other hand also a game, with which in the best case one develops a certain positive awareness of one’s own physical and mental control.
