Reed Ghazala’s eYe Project at EGS 2009


Reed Ghazala’s eYe Project is a new series of beautifully executed symbolic art pieces. The function is simple: a system of chance-blended color-changing LEDs inside of a peering glass eye, activated by the flick of a vintage toggle switch. The aleatoric color changes and rhythms are mesmerizing. Each case is hand crafted, bearing the hallmarks of Reed’s aesthetic, and is numbered and signed in gold leaf. These are the first numbers in the series!

Next week Reed will be attending the Experimental Garage Sale in Chicago on August 8th and will have these art pieces on display and for sale.

Note – Reed’s eYe sculptures are available, pre-show, pre-eBay, for $150 (Reed promises to retain some for the garage sale, too). Contact Reed at

Reed promises to have for sale some of the best vintage electronic parts available anywhere, like shuttered or polarized pilot lenses, short-throw all-metal reset switches, plus glass deer eyes, classic knobs, signed CDs, historic ephemera and way more. He will also be signing hand-annotated copies of his Circuit Bending: Build Your Own Alien Instruments book. Hope to see you there!
