Abstract [en]

The way we use our gaze in face-to-face interaction is an important part of our social behavior. This exploratory study investigates the relationship between mutual gaze and joint silences and overlaps, where speaker changes and backchannels often occur. Seven dyadic conversations between two persons were recorded in a studio. Gaze patterns were annotated in ELAN to find instances of mutual gaze. Part of the study was conducted in total darkness as a way to observe what happens to our gaze-patterns when we cannot see our interlocutor, although the physical face-to-face condition is upheld. The results show a difference in the frequency of mutual gaze in conversation in light and darkness.
