Grimace is a studio based performance employing three digital video cameras networked to a multiple camera security system. The two faces displayed are a reconstruction of artist Garrett Lynch's face. Two camera video his eyes while the third camera videos his mouth. The live feed of each of the eyes are then used eight times with a set of four right eyes on the left of the screen and a set of four left eyes on the right of the screen. Two identical live feeds of the mouth are displayed below each set of eyes. The resulting composition is of two faces bearing a close resemblance yet differing slightly, reacting, grimacing, to some unseen event or in response to each other.
