Installation Virtual Tour: Expanded Eye
Expanded Eye is a luminous interactive sculpture by Anaisa Franco featured at our event in São Paulo that consists of a gigantic transparent “eye” suspended from the ceiling. This eye looks at the observer through an infra-red camera and projects the onlooker’s own eyes back at them from inside a glass globe. Every time the person looking at the camera blinks, it triggers an animation. With each blink the number of eyes in the projection is multiplied in a fragmented, hexagonal, and dislocated manner. The aim of the work is to expand the vision of human beings by inviting us to see ourselves through our own eyes. Expanded Eye investigates vision within a magical context in which perception is united with self-reflection and observation.
