Expanded Eye is an interactive light sculpture composed by a big transparent eye sculpture suspended from the ceiling; the big eye looks to the user, but it's in fact user's eye which is projected inside the sculpture. The sculpture recognizes the user’s eye blinking and generates an interactive animation based on it. Each blink of the user multiplies the number of eyes in the projection in a fragmented, hexagonal and dislocated way. The core of the piece is to expand the view of human beings, transforming the view into a multiple and hexagonal expansion as the ultra complex insect’s compounds eyes structure.

Expanded Eye project was developed during Interactivos? 2008 at Medialab Prado in Madrid, Spain.
It was developed in collaboration with:
Jacqueline Steck, Alvaro Cassinelli, Carles Gutiérrez, Oswald Aspilla Pérez
