The sentence “Your gaze hits the side of my face” phrase first appeared in an 1981 artwork along with the profile of an anonymous classical bust. A phrasing that suggests that such a gaze is impertinent. When it comes to the lens of a camera Barbara Kruger says: ‘What it menas to put a camera at another person, I think there is a brutality about that.’
