About

A dream can come true, with your help! 

After 8 years of working on this story with some great friends, Naked Eye Project- the Book: "More than meets the eye" was born in May 2017. It was an exciting journey and it was amazing what happened after the launch (see video on this page at the end). More than 6500 people got their hands on the book. 2000 People had the chance to have their portraits taken by our Naked Eye-team. And then, out of the blue, a famous Dutch art-museum asked us to prepare an exhibition for 2019. What a great year it has been and what an even better year to come. 

Naked Eye - the Exhibition in CODA 

Will you help us to create this amazing high-end exhibition? 

Exhibition opens February 10th, with official opening on February 14th of 2019. Exhibition ends June 10th of 2019.

More than meets the eye

Its a marvelous adventure, but also a very expensive one.

To have an art exhibitions on this level, our production has to go to the next level.

Besides that we want you all to be surprised about the new images, next to the ones already seen in the book and a new translation of our portraits, shot in a way never seen before. (Sorry but it needs to be a surprise for the grand-opening).

You can pledge with so many different options: There will be Chef's Table dining at the museum, photoshoots and artwork, museumtickets, books and even an auditorium to host your event or product launch.

What is the exhibition about?

Are you also fascinated by what happens when you look into someone’s eyes? You can drown in them, they can be eyes that look away, they can be intoxicating or they seem to look straight through you. Why do we make or avoid eye contact? And does what we see in a person’s left eye differ from what we see in their right eye? Could it be possible we see emotion in the right eye which is connected to the emotional right hemisphere of the brain? And do we see a visible connection of rational left hemisphere in the left eye?

We invite you to look at the portraits in this exhibition and let us know what you see.

It all started with an illustration of the two hemispheres of the brain, which corresponded to the way I saw myself at the time. Shortly after that, someone mentioned that when we make intense eye contact, without realizing it, you actually only see and connect with one of the eyes of the other person. Those two things kept leading me to the same question. Were these two theses somehow related to each other? And, if so, how could I make the connection visible? 

Everyone to whom we showed the edited portraits had an opinion about them. For us this was an incentive to explore the subject in more depth. All of a sudden, we found ourselves at the interface between disciplines such as science, optics, psychology and spirituality. The reactions to the portraits were varied and interesting and they all called for an answer. 

This is your chance to make eye-contact with the portraits in art-musuem CODA in Apeldoorn, Netherlands.

Get involved and help us make it happen!

Please help us to bring this 4 months exhibition to the highest level possible and support our Kickstarter project. It would mean al lot to us if you share this page as much as possible.

You can pledge with so many different options: we host Hotel naked Eye to have a night at the museum, we have Chef's Table dining at the museum, Photoshoots and artwork, museumtickets, books and even an auditorium to host your event or launch.
