The word, “amaurotic” means blind. Amaurosis is partial or complete loss of vision, especially without an externally perceptible change in the eye. In the video work, we used a huge magnifying glass as a tool. The goal was to see inside my belly without opening my body, for which a magnifying glass obviously cannot be a functional device. The magnifying glass was just a symbol of the searching gaze. The intention to open the body was indicated by invisible hand movements behind the magnifying glass. Thanks to the camera setup and interference, my partner Csaba Szeredi was able to take a recording that evokes an endoscopic shot. Thanks to the magnifying glass and the camera lenses, in the end I managed to explore my guts without opening my body.
