Eyebombing: A Photo Project on Humanizing the World

2011-12-24 2

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!
