Le regard est un choix / Look is a choice

Le regard est un choix. Celui qui regarde décide de se fixer sur telle chose et donc forcément d’exclure de son attention le reste de son champ de vision. C’est en quoi le regard, qui est l’essence de la vie, est d’abord un refus.

Look is a choice. He who looks chooses to focus on that thing and hence to exclude from his attention the rest of his field of vision. This is how the look, which is the very essence of life, is at first a no.
