Watch Me! is an experimental installation dedicated to documenting social bind (defined below) by intervening in a public space. It observes the behaviour of people's "eyes" using a robot bear as an unusual event.

When you visit another country for the first time, you may be puzzled by people's behaviour as they respond to incidents or encounters. Then you might realise that they seem to behave spontaneously but are predisposed to exhibit certain behavioural traits by society and culture. We call this "social bind."
