Optych

Notes

The scopes and lenses represents an illuminati from the power of ones perceptions. The title, Optych, comes from diptych or triptych - a way of presenting art which origins from christian altar decorations. I find it ironic to combine optics as sacred effects which let us control and manipulate light. Truth is in the eye of the beholder.

It turned out a little farfetched, and ended up with a design that manipulate input trough some optical device - which somehow should resemble a third eye. The irony here was that this third eye was a mechanical device which had a custom lens kit. I painted this with black ink and water. Added some highlights afterwards in Photoshop. 42x29cm
