different images elicit a range of emotions

the project do not believe your eyes is composed of nine images. the piercing blue eyes have been transformed into water and clouds while the velvety golden brown peepers now house a squirrel, a bird and a mysterious train track.

the artist says the variety of images are used to evoke different feelings. nature-based images can evoke feelings of comfort or tranquility while menacing hands extended over a white iris can evoke feelings of mild dread. meanwhile, egg yolk eyes are just fantastically weird.
