Manuscript for an audio play performed at Stages: Drawing the Curtain, curated by Jenifer Papararo, Plug In ICA, Winnipeg, 2017.

“The Invention and Conclusion of the Eye” presents a possible future of human vision told through a narrative conversation between a sole protagonist and a computer. Interwoven with contemporary and historical diagrams plotting various aspects of sight, Johannessen’s work depicts vision as a historical construct evolving alongside technology.
