Inspired by an ever-increasing sense of surveillance in our contemporary lives, Giovanna Inserra’s Blink presents a playful Big Brother-ish eye watching over Ballarat.

By projecting and illuminating a large eye onto an oak tree on Sturt Street – an eye that will look left, then right, then appear to follow you and eventually blink – Inserra aims to engage viewers to think about how much visual surveillance we now encounter in our public spaces.
