The walls have eyes

Down below Ground Zero at the Chambers Street/World Trade Center station in New York City the walls are fabulous. Oculus (Eye) was created by Kristin Jones and Andrew Ginzel, and it comprises 300 different mosaic eyes based on human eyes taken from photographs. I love the eyes, I love that they are watching, and I love the meaning. They are spectacular works of art. There are lots of mosaics all over the subway system but I am drawn to these.
