The Glass Eye combines theoretical texts, artists interventions and work in progress. It offers a range of contextualised critical pespectives informed by art practice, which consider many diverse aspects of the televisual.

Giordaí Ua Laoghaire, Roger Gregg, Ania Corcilius, Valerie Connor, Maurice O’Connell and Eva Rothschild employ fiction, drawaing collecting and painting to explore the shifting spatial and temporal peripheries of the televisual. Michelle Deignan, Andrea Geyer, Dennis McNulty, Stuart Purdy and Janine Sack exploit generic codes of light entertainment, advertising, soap and news. Orla Ryan uses film as a lens through which to read telvision, discussing the representation of technological transformations. Matthew Buckingham and Brian Hand approach words and pictures suggsting new narratives in different forms of TV viewing and Lna Lin and Korinna Knoll negotiate cultural and geographical specificities through the everyday experience of television. Bettina Funcke traces the reception of modernist high art within the domain of pop or mass culture while Maeve Connelly and Andrea Ray focus on the excesses of contemporary televisual production and consumption.
