Weekend Reflections - Vivid - Eye See You by Zymryte Hoxhaj
Eye See You is watching you! More than 300 handmade and printed paper-puppets are watching you with their giant eye. The artist is exploring the ever-increasing presence of public space surveillance and the desire for after dark public space to be more creative and safe. Public versus private and self versus collective are relationships constantly negotiated and reflected upon here.
German born designer Zymryte Hoxhaj, of Kosovo-Albanian heritage, has completed her thesis in media art, design and graphic design at the school of fine arts, Hochschule der Bildenden Kunste Saar, in Saarbrucken, Germany. Zymryte is now part of the design collective BUREAU STABIL in Germany.
