An action that everyone can take! The protagonists are objects encountered on the street. Eyebombing is the act of setting googly eyes on inanimate things in the public space. Ultimately the goal is to humanize the streets, and bring sunshine to people passing by, a photo project by an artistic collective.
Eyebombing.com is a website dedicated to pictures of inanimate objects decorated with plastic googly eyes, there is also a Flickr pool. The folks behind Eyebombing have begun attaching googly eyes to inanimate objects in public spaces. The objective is clear and simple: humanize the streets or make the streets more human, and give a bit of fun.
There are only two simple rules:
1. Only images of inanimate objects with wiggly eyes (NOT stickers!)
2. Only images taken in the public space.
Hey lomographer, why not glue googly eyes onto a trash receptacle and transform it into an adorable garbage-munching monster? It makes the world seem somewhat less mechanical and we can do it in an analogue way!
Geoffrey Berliner is the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York. As the head of an organization whose goals are 'to be a comprehensive resource for photographers at any level' and 'to continue to publicize the impact photography has had and continues to have on culture, history and the arts,' his exposure to photographic materials -from 19th century gems to modern equipment- is so extensive, one cannot even begin to fathom just how much knowledge and experience this man has acquired. His collection of over 2000 vintage Petzval lenses is unparalleled, and the object of envy of both traditional and contemporary photographers. Although such lenses are reputed to require a certain level of skill to be used, Berliner seems to manage them with so much ease, producing splendid results.

In this interview, Tomkins introduces him to us and shares the idea behind his personal project.

Mysterious apparitions and other inexplicable phenomena on film, or generally speaking, for that matter, are as highly debated topics today as they were many decades ago. In 1934, a certain Mr. C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield held a lecture at 76 Clarkehouse Road located in the same city to "demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography" before an invited committee. MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
