Does "a line of sight that begins at Acconci's plane of vision and ends at the eyes of his projected double" in the following description mean "a line of sight that begins with what Acconci sees in front of him (i.e. the lens of camera) and ends with his picture on the monitor in front of the viewer"?

    This seems reasonable. If Wagner isn't referring to the notion that Acconci is looking at an image of himself in that photograph, I don't know what she is trying to convey with the phrases a sustained tautology and his projected double.
