Eye of the Future by Tomas Penc
Eye of the Future

stainless steel, automotive paint, concrete, 11 x 2.2 x 1 meters, 2019/2020

Using computer 3D software and anamorphism as a perspective distortion, this sculpture is a subtle metaphor on knowledge, rational thinking, power of a human being and St. Columba as the patron of this school. Consisting of five individual standalone shapes and a concrete platform, when not aligned with the vantage point designated in order for the viewer to reconstruct the intended image, the shapes break down into constituent parts forming a visual puzzle.

Commissioned under the Per Cent for Art Scheme and completed in 2020, the sculpture is located at St. Columba’s BNS Douglas, Cork, Ireland.
