The Vision Thing

Laumeier Sculpture Park 2014-07-20 7

The phrase was coined by someone else, but here it is, in your face, a mote in your eye bigger than your whole body. Tony Tasset's Eye is the must-have-a-snap sculpture for visitors to Laumeier Sculpture Park. However, it's something you need to think about for a while. The description on the park's website (click the link) is a bit of art babble. Better if you can sit by it and consider the associations that come from this disembodied organ, 12 feet / 3 2/3 meters in diameter. I think it's terribly creepy.

T#is looks like something you would see on the wall in an eye doctor's office.

I think it's quite disconcerting!

The eyeball part is creepy. But the universe within the iris is compelling. Windows of the soul, etc.

Terribly creepy. You took the words right out of my mouth.
