I have always had a fascination with how the eye works. How it perceives the world and translates the information and light that we see everyday straight to our brains is simply amazing. The eye is one of the most important tools an artist can have. It allows us to drink in information and help the mind construct creations from our imagination based on the inspirational world around us. With those themes in mind, I wanted to make my phenakistoscope based around the principles of how an eye works. It is always moving, searching, eating up light and knowledge.
