Stretch Objects

'Images clad our daily lives, yet we never stop to think of those that allow us to see them: our eyes'

Eyes are crowded with muscles, which, similar to other muscles, can grow tired or strained. So why does it seem like the impossible became reality when our eyes grow strained?

Thinking of warming ups and cooling downs in sports I started developing stretch objects. The goal is to invite eye movements which break up the constant loop of looking at screens, yet the real question I pose is how can we take better care of our eyes in our daily lives?

Exhibited at Toekomstfestival 'Leren in 2050' on the 7th of june in Nemo, Amsterdam. Featured in the 'leren leren leren' documentary from STT.
