Italian-born director Lucas Zanotto has just released a personal project entitled Eyes. The video explores the transformative effect that eyes can have on inanimate objects through a series of kinetic sculptures. Eyes is a continuation of the director’s previous project Having a Face which saw him entertaining similar visual puns.
These sculptures are hand-made and beautifully simplistic, made out of whatever happened to be lying around – ping pong balls, sheets of paper and paper plates. With sound design by David Kamp, the video is both humorous and endearing, highlighting how pleasing it can be when artists and designers are creatively playful. Through simple and subtle movements, Zanotto conveys a series of complex human emotions such as the “it wasn’t me,” eye roll in the wake of a mysteriously knocked over plant.
