"Looking Longer" was a series of screen prints made in association with the IU Southeast Summer Creative Work Fellowship.   Each print in the series was created by tracking a volunteer's eye movement across a "reference" artwork. This movement is translated into a heatmap of focus. The intensity of focus is indicated by the color of the cloud- reds and oranges represent areas that the volunteer looked at quite a bit and areas of blue and violet represent quick glances.   Each print was named for the individual whose gaze is represented in the image. In the exhibition, each print was shown next to the reference artwork. This format allowed the viewer to compare what the volunteer looked at to the original and consider what they might see differently. The combination of commercial tools (eye tracking software, analytical heat map tools, and screen printing) with art makes the viewer consider her role as a consumer and helps slow down the experience of seeing art, thinking more and looking longer.
