Bug Eye

an interactive sculpture
(1996) (5.5′ x 4′ x 6′)
commissioned by the Staten Island Children’s Museum

My goal was to empower young kids to experience pattern, texture, and various 2D and 3D shapes through the process of their “dressing-up” this sculpture with its various “accessories” (that were kept in an attractive wall-hung bin). The kids could also change the color of the bug’s mono-eye by changing the bottom-half with large transparent, colored Lexan lenses.
