Eyes are the window to the soul. It's no secret that humans respond to eyes, real or artificial, because they tell us so much. The slightest movements relay what the person behind them is thinking, what they are paying attention too, and how they feel. Even stripped down to two simple black dots on two white orbs, we recognize them as eyes because they are that important to us.
Helsinki designer and filmmaker Lucas Zanotto constructed several kinetic sculptures that use simple shapes and movements to show us something we are infinitely familiar with: googly eyes. When artificial eyes act in familiar ways, we know exactly what's going on. When they act goofy, we find it delightful. Enjoy Zanotto's eyes moving in lots of different ways. -via Metafilter
