Description of work

Two sculptures made of mirrored stainless steel. The largest component of the sculpture is 18 feet high and the smaller one is 12 feet high.

Artist statement

The sculptures are positioned close to each other, informing each other, influencing each other and mirroring each other. Each have a voiding the shape and the context of an eye. The artists were influenced by Jane Jacob (renown City Planner) who said, speaking of cities, that "there must be eyes upon the street, eyes belonging to those who might call the natural proprietors of the street". Jacob refers to the eyes of the many residents in areas of high density. They are always there providing a recording of the life on teh street and in the environment.
