As the picture begins to sway and rock in Agnieszka Polska’s "The Leisure Time of a Firearm," 2015, we hope for a steady hand. We do not blink as we gaze upon the ultimate stalemate – a pupil literally stares down the barrel of a gun. Despite being on the edge of tremendous violence, the eye remains steady and offers no emotion; excitement and anxiety are brought to the table by us. The action starts slow, deliberate, then the image swells and rolls, before coming to a near stop. Order appears to restore itself. The oscillations nearly stop but then, we are hit by a flurry of movement. The indefinable stress takes us away from our consciousness, our own steadiness.
