Item Details
If you're in Chicago, chances are you've already ran into Tony Tasset's three-story high, hyperrealistic fiberglass eyeball. In Pritzker Park sits Eye, a colossal sphere that was commissioned by the Chicago Loop Alliance. The American multimedia artist wanted to compete with the other big sculptures in the city.
“A lot of my artwork takes things that are already somewhat familiar and recontextualizes them. People can project their own ideas onto [the eyeball], but I guess it's a symbol of consciousness and being part of a community.”
