Pascal Leboucq and Lucas De Man’s EYE Is Watching You

by CaroPosted on

In today’s world, we’re constantly being watched by surveillance videos, big businesses, even in the privacy of our own homes via the internet. It’s the most socially driven, and also unsettling, time in human history. Belgian artists Pascal Leboucq and Lucas De Man have created an installation takes this idea to an entirely new perspective. Like something out of The Lord of the Rings, their interactive EYE installation of 5 large foreboding pupils see all. Here’s how it works: the installation seats one visitor at a time. A specially trained usher assists you onto a chair and secures your seatbelt, then wheels you through the window out into the eye. There, you hang outside the building from inside. Life inside the eye is lonely but stimulating, offering a theatrical experience of sight and sound over the city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands, currently. The installation is on view (no pun intended) for 40 days until it tours internationally. For all of the EYE locations, visit its website and social media.
