Eyebombing, Humanizing the World, One Googly Eye at a Time

In an effort to “humanize the streets, and bring sunshine to people passing by”, the folks behind Eyebombing have begun attaching googly eyes to inanimate objects in public spaces. They encourage participation and have even created a page on where to buy bulk googly eyes. Take a look at the entire online gallery for inspiration.

We recently posted about a similar project, called They Live, by Timm Schneider where he has attached cartoon eyeballs to anthropormorphize everyday outdoor objects.

The rules for eyebombing are simple:

1. Only images of inanimate objects with wiggle eyes – NOT stickers.

2. Only images taken in the public space.
