Eyes Wide Open: Trying Out the “Eye-Bombing” Craze in HKU!

April 21, 2017 / by / 0 Comment

All sorts of challenges, viral videos and memes constantly fill up our news feeds, but have you ever heard of “eye-bombing”?

“Eye-bombing” is the elaborate art of pasting “googly eyes” onto otherwise inanimate objects in the public sphere, cleverly lending the object the appearance of a living creature.

Turns out, we are surrounded by incomplete faces waiting for eyes to be pasted on them. Similar to seeing Virgin Mary on Toast or George Washington on a rock, there is a website dedicated to the practice, as well as a sub-reddit filled with inspiring images.

Last week, we dropped our own bomb on campus.

The subreddit says:

Ultimately the goal is to humanize the streets, – and bring sunshine to people passing by.

So if you want to bring sunshine to people’s lives, you know what to do!
