the eyes really are the windows of the soul. here’s another awesome installation by Liam Key. I love the transition from day to night. I’m icluding the artist’s explanation and reflection here but I’d really suggest you have a proper look at these visionary visuals. Let me know what you think. I’m still deciding if it’s kind of spooky or maybe endearing.
The large eyeball installation tracks any persons walking by and follows them, using a Kinect camera.
The installation is running on Unity via a live game engine which ensured a much tighter and better mapping of the installation, and allowed the use of skeletal tracking with the Kinect.
All eyes on me, Please – is truly a sight to behold. The intense sea of eyes blinking, looking and scanning your face makes you feel uneasy, yet you become the centre of attention. This push/pull duality is the goal of the piece, as we all secretly desire to be seen and watched, yet are haunted by the depth of the human eye. Eyes are the windows to the soul, the visual representation of the Ghost in the Shell.
