Eye on Chicago

Posted by Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 20 February 2017 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Oak Park, Illinois artist Tony Tasset designed this three-story eyeball after the sphere in his own socket. Aptly titled, "EYE", this massive replica of Tony's own eye sits in Pritzker Park at Van Buren and State Street in Chicago, casting a menacing gaze at anybody who dares walk past. Made of steel-reinforced fiberglass, the piece was built by F.A.S.T. Corp. of Sparta, Wisconsin.

After putting my watermark on this photo, I noticed how eerily similar the position of the iris is in comparison to where the iris was captured in this photograph.

It's scary. I have some level of phobia of eye diseases. I prefer 1000 times to go to a dental appointment than go to an ophthalmologist's office.
The sculpture is very realistic ... Scary.
