Circling around Compound Eye/I, reflected light follows us . . . as if we are being watched. Looking into the shifting centers of the lenses, we meet our own gaze.
Up close, the sculpture reinforces a familiar sense of self by placing us at the center of each reflective lens. Stepping away, we see our image overlapping with everyone else’s—a composite of shared reflection.
Compound Eye/I presents the eye as an instrument of reflection together with the “I” as the subject of reflection—boundaries blur between perspectives of inner and outer, personal and collective, conveying a picture of interconnectedness—with each of us as facets of a greater, compound “eye/I.”
