Hey - you staring at me

I like this piece of art. But I will say that I'm glad the artist did not complete the pair. Two would be too creepy.






I thought of making this a "Where's the clown" challenge but the piece was just recently put up and it's going down in October.  It's in downtown Chicago.  How would you like this looking in your office window?

Hey COOL. We have one of those in a Laumier Sculpture Garden in Saint Louis. I would love to SEE two together and actuated with an armature so that they would follow people as they walk by. Neat! W.C.C.

LOL! Two would've been too much! I like this kind of art too. Thanks for sharing!
Sunny SIMC greetings from Casablanca!

one is creepy enough!! i see what you mean about the "keeping an eye out" similarity!

dwmatty said...

It's definitely unique and interesting. It tends to catch your eye.

Boss I can't work. I have this feeling that someone is constantly watching me from across the street.

Haha, got in this time by going to disqus login first, beat it! The eyeball is lovely and what 20 feet tall?

lisleman said...

that's good. I sign in before doing anything with it. I have the computer save my login info so it's not difficult.
Might be more than 20 feet. I was lucky to see it because it was not "officially" unveiled and I heard that they covered it up the next day for the unveiling.

Eye like it! I'm might like two of them. I don't know.

lisleman said...

I took these pictures so if you would like to use them for any post about your eyes or whatever just mention me with a linkback. I assume your eyes are back in order now.
I think two would be hard to match up. Maybe they could put a magnifying glass in front.
thanks

That's been going on for too long. I understand how you would expect it to clear up by now. Well I don't know much about it but you certainly should keep to the treatment routine.
I just got this stupid thought in my head and I hope there's still some left over humor in your brain. - You know the saying - better than a sharp stick in the eye. Well in your case maybe not.

Why would they want to take it down! It is awesome.

Thank you for linking me at WTC page. I am really enjoying this game. Maybe Mr Dave Hambidge would continue playing the game and also continue with his other "silly" games (they were fun and I miss them).

New clue to Glorious: read comment of someone who already got the answer spot on! :)

lisleman said...

sure no problem - thanks for submitting another challenge.
Dave did put some cropped pictures up to guess at his new blog.
I'll be looking for that answer.

That's pretty funny. I especially like the shot with the guy standing in front of it; reminds me of a sci-fi movie :)

Hey I just found this slideshow of the eye over at the Chicago Tribune site

I'm actually having eye issues. That's part of why I'm in a funk. My iritis seems to be clearing up, but I still have to take the medicine for another 3 weeks to make sure it's all gone.
