Today’s photo is a quick iPhone snap taken today when I was exercising. The photo does not do justice for this art project in uptown Charlotte. The concept interest me so I am sure I will be back to take more photos.
The art project is by Aguinaldo Santos, a local Charlotte artist. The collage of eyes is part of a larger project called 1839 Art exhibition. The collage of eyes is on one end of an exhibit in the “form of a model … of the first commercial photographic camera in the world, made in France in 1839”.
Interestingly, part of the exhibit includes the statement that the “Human Eye is equivalent to a 576 Megapixel camera”.
For more information please visit AN.LO Visualization Studio and view the 1839 Art exhibit PDF which comes up from his QR code.
The exhibit can be found at 325 S. Tyron from October 22nd to November 26th.
