The Eyes have it

Shanghai nights are going to get a little more interesting with this “Night Watch” art installation in Jubilee Park. Commisioned by Canary warf, Wokmedia together with lighting designer Admir Jukanovic/Mindseye employed the ancient Chinese art of inside painting where an image is reverse-painted through a small opening of a hollowed crystal ball. This technique creates a stunning variety of animal eyes into 200 crystal balls, which will be placed throughout the park, among the bushes and trees. When night falls a secret life unfolds and the animal eyes act as metaphors: “a questioning gaze towards our secured and controlled environments with little space left undeveloped.” I would not recommend doing any sort of hellucenigeutic drugs during the dates of June 26-28.
