Giant Eyeballs

Giant Eyeballs was developed for the Making it Exhibition as part of the 2014 Edinburgh International Science Festival. The exhibition was on display in the grand gallery of the National Museum of Scotland in edinburgh. Giant eyeballs was co designed with Yann Seznec and Matthew Wright of the Edinburgh international Science Festival. Those who encounter Giant Eyeballs look through peepholes and see their own eye. Their view of their eye has coloured dots on top of it, as they move their eye, the dots move and sounds that are playing change.

On the exterior of the installation is a projection of the eyes that are peeping through a hole. When in full use, there are two different eyes looking in separate directions. The installation is particularly successful in creating intergenerational social interaction. As children peep through the holes, older members of the family look at the display and discuss the installation with the children.
