Then we went back to work. I put my phone on airplane mode and brought in Lauren. We sat down and set the timer. The moment we sat down in the dark, that was the first thing that struck me, and then the giggles, which she got too. After a few long seconds, we settled into our places. The bottom of her face started to elongate, and the highlights on her cheeks started to look like some kind of war paint or tribal markings.

It occurred to me that she looked like a Native American chieftain. Then my phone fell off the camera bag it was sitting on, and smacked onto the floor. I broke our stare to pick it up and restart the timer. It had been about 30 seconds. We started again. Her cheekbones look so bright.

Very early on, my left eye started to water. A tear filled it up and rolled down my cheek. I brushed it away, and then worried that may have distracted Lauren. Then another one came, and I just let it roll all the way down to my neck. Then my right eye started too. Was I forgetting to blink?

But then, wait a minute. Was Lauren crying? It looked like her eyes were welling up, and it seemed like the corners of her mouth turned down. I felt there was a lot of emotion behind her eyes, and I just kept staring into them.

The whites of her eyes looked bright in the darkness, still framed by her eyebrows. She agreed. I asked if she noticed my eyes watering the whole time. It made me think of the Marina Abramovic performance piece, The Artist is Present, in which many of participants cried when faced with the silent, sitting Abramovic.

I told Lauren it looked like she was welling up a couple of times. Then she told me why she laughed halfway through our sitting. Lauren also said my face faded into a black silhouette, surrounded by blue light—and that at one point, it occurred to her that my face, in the dark, looked like death. I tried not to take this personally. We sat down as friends and colleagues who are comfortable with one another, not strangers. It made me think of The New York Times story paywall about falling in love with a stranger by answering personal questions while gazing into their eyes.

I highly recommend finding a friend and a dark room, and taking ten minutes to try this out. Who knows what could happen? These are some of our most ambitious editorial projects. From our Obsession.

Staring into someone’s eyes for ten minutes is like tripping, without the drugs
