EYE consists of 5 enormous Eyes hanging from different buildings in the city. Radically secluded yet organically connected to the city, EYE offers a physically extraordinary and very intimate dramatic experience. Each EYE seats one visitor at a time, hanging inside the installation outside a building. The installation challenges you to see the city, the other and yourself from a different perspective. This cross-discipline art project combines a unique experience performance with animation and sound in stunning visual design.
The human city by city artist Lucas De Man
Lucas De Man is city artist for Den Bosch (NL) and artistic director of New Heroes. New Heroes creates projects and urban actions in public space.
In all his projects Lucas strives to turn the public space from a consumerist marketplace, into a space that amazes, connects and encourages encounters. With EYE Lucas pleads for more humanity in the city.
“Man wants to be heard and seen and has the need to share his vulnerability every now and then. The city must accommodate this need by being a place for, of and by people.”
