World Eye Contact Experiment 2018: Dubai

The idea behind this moving concept, as described by the organisation, is: "Where has the human connection gone? How often do we look someone straight in the eyes for one minute or more? What happens when we try?” The World Eye Contact Experiment 2018 is embracing the human connection by hosting an eye-contact session in order to bring back the subtle practise of engaging with others. This amazing movement has travelled the world with hundreds of thousands of participants.
