look funny glasses

Commissioned for a conference cocktail party event, these “Look funny glasses” playfully amplify and distort the repeated circular patterns that cover the RMIT Design Hub building. Based on stenopeic glasses, the perforated lenses only allow very narrow beams of light to enter the eye, increasing the depth of field and exercising eye muscles.

The close spacing of the perforations can also lead to moments of double-vision and disorientation. Continuing the trajectory of a series of architectural installations that engaged with the spatial and optical qualities of the building, this project takes a lighter, more provisional approach in line with a practice I call ‘studio sketching’. Thanks to Caitlyn Parry for the laser cutting expertise!
