Flysses

The characteristics of eyeglasses, like the shape and size of the frame, the materials or the tint of the lenses, construct a cultural perception and constitute signposts that can attest to human traits. This project addresses eyeglasses as a tool for characterising and shaping identity by creating a hybrid of a mask and a piece of jewellery. The morphological inspiration for the project is drawn from flies, which possess a unique eye structure called 'compound eye'.

Materials: Lenses, plastic eyes, synthetic hair from a paint brush, brass, spray paint, glue.
