an eye for every occasion

BOX OF EYEBALLS life is like a box of eyeballs…

BOX OF EYEBALLS

on dec. 21st,

the ocularist poured algae into what's left of my eye.
it hardened after 2 minutes and formed a molding.
next visit he will take a digital pict of my working blue eye.
3rd visit he will paint it on the acrylic.
and the last, the ocularist will fit my new eye covering, sealing my socket.
a new look designed.

hanging on the wall of his office was the egyptian hieroglyph
THE EYE OF HORUS

THE EYE OF HORUS

and a salvador dali print,
THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE EYE

(which i'm having a hell of a time finding online — anybody know where this is??)

dr. danz is 5th generation ocularist.

DR. EYE BALL DANZ
he is the only one creating eye scleral shells in san francisco. his great great great grandfather invented the glass eye in germany.

when i wear the patch i'm creating a persona.

ME & THE NUTCRACKER

but, mostly i like to bring out my beady little dead eye out into the air.

as a war wound. to be entirely me with nothing to hide.

WIDE OPEN AND RAW

One thought on “an eye for every occasion

  1. hi tanya. it’s suhail, from the n-train yesterday. it was good to meet you. we met after you’d spent hours building your blog. to jog your memroy, i wrecked my car last year. i dig your blog. i was reading your other entries: i agree that it would be fucking crackly cool to have a bionic eye. did the doc give you any realistic estimates on when such technologies would be available to the purchasing public and what they might cost? can you have your new eye with little pictures and designs on it? maybe a cartoon eyeball or a shamrock for st. patricks day?
    come say hello,
    Suhail.
