“The Eye” is a sculpture which functions as a giant kaleidoscope immersing the viewer into patterns and colors formed from the Google campus. The intent is to creating new images based on the surrounding landscape.
The structure is comprised of multiple 1 inch fins that are interlocked vertically and horizontally to form a waffle shaped sphere. The top half of the sphere is filled in with individual units of handmade kaleidoscopes (1054 units in total) that reflect small computer controlled images captured from the Google campus itself. These images are projected to the bottom half of the sphere and creates the resulting effect of the kaleidoscope mandala where the viewer experiences the essence of the campus and the privacy of any individuals in the originally captured images are protected. The sphere shaped sculpture is constructed with Kebony wood and aluminum and stands 13’ tall.
