The Great Eye was an outdoor art installation built for the Cley 12 Aisle and Air visual arts festival. Supported by mirror-clad angled supports, a reed-clad tower rises to 7.5 metres. A camera obscura inside casts an image of the surrounding landscape onto the ceiling. Reeds were chose to blend with the surrounding vegetation and suggest a primitive appearance from close-up. From a distance, the mirrors reflect the sky and the tower appears to float - creating an ambiguous relationship with the ground. We were interested in the memory of lost coastal buildings, and sought to demonstrate the shifting nature of the Norfolk coastal landscape.
