Eyemoeba is a suspended shower of light and color. It is comprised of thousands of dichroic glass elements stranded on stainless steel cables. The sculpture hovers in space, defining the vast expanse with several thousands of sparkling, chromatic, light-sensitive glass elements that fill, but do not “occupy” the space in an opaque sense. The effect is ethereal and mystical, as the sculpture uses dispersion of light into spectral colors that reflect and refract into the surrounding space in unexpected ways. These chromatics change constantly depending on the orientation of the viewer and the angle of light, shimmering and transmorphing like a mirage.
