Anatomy of the Gaze: A Hitchcockian Infographic

Anatomy of the Gaze, yours truly, 2019

Scratch beneath the nitrate gloss of any given Alfred Hitchcock movie, and you’ll find it’s flabbergastingly erudite.

The background

Twittering Machine, Paul Klee, 1922

Diagramming the gaze

Representation of Consciousness, Robert Fludd, 1619

The eyes have it — or — Jeepers, creepers, where did Dalí get those peepers?

I’m pretty sure Dalí straight up stole the eye-guys from It’s Venus in Person!, (J. J. Grandville, 1844), but as of press time I haven’t been able to locate the picture.

Uh oh, Susannah!
