Red Eye | Look Optical | Maynard Art Walk | Maynard, MA | 2015
The Maynard Art Walk is an annual event where the local businesses collaborate with artists and musicians for a public celebration. Look Optical is owned by a musician and there is a space set aside to hang artwork and for musicians to perform. Within this space is the eye chart and corresponding equipment which can't be moved. Maybe that's why the exhibition wall is red, to highlight the Snellen chart. All of these details came to the fore in Red Eye, I was thinking about looking, measurement, limitations and play. In John Berger’s Ways of Seeing, he says “the relation between what we see and what we know is never settled”.
