“Look Into My Eyes”

Part of  Model Citizen’s “Heads Will Roll” auction/exhibit to benefit  Community Connection

I made this special MOX by carving out the foam inside the head. I then cut the eyes out and installed a circulating LED. The LED circulates through the colors red, blue and green. Since this is to celebrate Halloween I went with classic Hollywood Horror icons, Lon Chaney, Jr. as the Wolfman, Bela Lugosi as Dracula and Boris Karloff as Frankenstein’s monster. They are each tinted red, blue and green (respectively) so that as the LED circulates through the colors only one is visible at a time. Hope you enjoy!

I grew up with a veterinarian as a father and an artist as a mother. Having a father as a veterinarian instilled in me a deep affinity for animals. All the animal companions we took in were rejects from Dad’s practice whom clients had left behind.

Helping out at my father’s practice gave me direct behind-the-scenes access into the lives of animals on a daily basis. It is hard to pinpoint an exact time, but I was very young when I slowly realized that animals were not all that different than humans. Time and time again I saw various cats and dogs expressing emotion and feeling beyond basic instinct. Witnessing both happy moments and not so happy moments between owners and pets made me realize the massive impact animals have on humans and vice versa. Some call it energy. Some call it spirit. But we can all agree that there is something connecting us all. To paraphrase: We are not animal beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having an animal experience.
