As part of Nights Light 2012, a festival in Singapore that features light installations around Singapore Art Museum (SAM) and School of the Arts (SOTA), WOKmedia created an installation that’s fun and quirky. Night Watch consists of 30 giant pairs of animal eyes peering out from the corridors of the museum, illuminating the night sky. Based on the eyeball patterns of animals we’re all familiar with like cats, birds, fishes and reptiles, the eyes are “colourful metaphors that cast a questioning gaze about our secured urban environment.” Every day, aren’t we all being watched?

‘上周结束的2012年新加坡灯光嘉年华里出现了一群奇特的“守夜者”,这些巨大的眼球在新加坡艺术馆外围的长廊透过玻璃窗向外瞪着所有的参观者,在夜里看守着展览馆的大楼。 该项装置艺术作品来自WOKmedia,在他们的官方网站上他们是这样介绍自己:“WOKmedia的作品主要试图通过记忆或实体感受来触击人感性的层面…从儿时的想象力中挖取元素来创造一个疯狂的世界。” 在“守夜者”,他们将人类周遭各种小宠物,如猫、狗或和蜥蜴等,的眼球图像放大并转载到一个个与房间一样大的灯笼上,这些成群结队地眼球像漂浮物一般包围大楼的外侧,让无生命的建筑充满了逗趣的生气。
