32 Eyes

I’ve sewn thirty-two eyes.

The ingredients are as follows: three of my nana’s threads (image below), a page from this catalogue, and, eyes cut from magazines and newspapers mostly gleaned from the bins of London’s public transport system.

The eyes (and photographers): Prince Harry, Alan Sugar, Pelé, Ian Richards, Pearl Mackie, Damian Lewis, David, Peter Capaldi, Lady Di, Lizzie Deignan, Eminem, Will Smith, Andrea Messent, Kate Tempest, Florence Welch, Julia Jackson, Ai Weiwei, ? , David Bowie, Sara Pascoe, Prince, Bakshiram, Deniz Gamze Ergüven, Ross Noble, Sarah Lucas, Leigh Bowery, Stanley Kubrick, Mo Farah, James May, Pope Francis, Marianne Faithfull.

  3. This is awesome! How small is it? Growing up, I always wanted to collect glass eyes. I just found them fascinating. I have never even owned one glass eye. Sniff. Maybe that’s why I’m so drawn to this piece.
