Enormous Eye Art Installations to Offer New City Perspective
Dutch city features 5 interactive eyeballs that give unique glimpses of urban life
‘S-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands has come to life, thanks to five gigantic eyes peering out offering visitors a unique perspective of the city. Artist Lucas De Man and designer Pascal Leboucq teamed up to create EYE, a multi-sensory experience for urban environments. The interactive installation features five stunning eyes, each with an interior theatrical experience designed to make participants see and understand themselves, the city and others from a fresh perspective.
In ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the gigantic eyes are strategically placed on different buildings that represent the city’s diversity: a theater, modern hospital, an old factory about to be redeveloped, a monument and a large corporate business. Each eye features a chair that wheels out into the eye’s pupil, suspended over the building and city for a one-of-a-kind viewing experience.
