EYES, a series of playful kinetic installations

Look left, look right, and get googly. EYES is a series of playful kinetic installations by Helsinki-based director, designer, and animator Lucas Zanotto. Watch as balls swing, leak, float, fly, and bobble about, making simple faces come alive. It could be potential inspiration for your own DIY moving eyes projects.
