Interactive EYE Collaborative Upcycle Tiny Huge Video Projection art project

The evolution of an eyeball project

IT ALL BEGAN with a flash of inspiration from my wife while brushing her teeth….”Alex Grey” she said. From that moment our idea for a little art show became a 3-day multimedia event featuring Alex and Allyson Grey on 11/11/2009.

As a means to promote our 1st BIG event production, I dreamed up an interactive approach by asking strangers if I could take a picture of their eye with the goal of reaching 1,111 eyes.

After 4 months of collecting images, I finally reached my goal and created the first mosaic piece and the project began a life of its own.

One eyeball leads to another...

Where the eyes all started! Pictured here are several un-cropped eyes direct from my view of the camera. I met so many amazing people and have stories about each eye. Anything from birds, to humans, to artwork was fair game.
