What is an object that you can only see with closed eyes? The intent of this prospective interactive art installation is to enact this paradoxical experience upon the viewer, and encourage meditation on the dichotomy of individual inner-realities and shared outer-realities. Plus, it makes a cool humming sound.
I made this video for the purposes of communicating my concept of the artwork and offering a reasonable blueprint for how the device could be made to function. I hope to actualize this artwork as soon as it is feasible.
