About this project

While meditating in 1997 I had the classic paranoid vision where you see many eyeballs. I began making the for my Seattle Gallery in 1988 and they have been my best sellers of all time. I made thousands of them. At first I was poking fun at the Y2K and year 2000 the "world going to end". To laugh at ones fear. Now here we are 2012 and some believe the "world" will be ending on 12/21/2012. Some of us have seen the future and know that this is not so.

I plan to make and stack ceramic eyeballs that are 20 inches in diameter so they look like a massive stacked pile of blue eyeballs. They represent fodder for the paranoid. Also the blue eyeball is the protector. I want the stack of eyeballs to be at least 12 feet tall.

Funds will be used to purchase materials and power needed to fire the eyes. Once the project is finished, hopefully by early December 2012, I will get it media attention and hopefully make a lot of people laugh there paranoid selves silly. the end is not near, see ya smiling all in 2013.

Once the project is finished I plan to donate it to an accredited museum so it can be shared with as many people as possible.
