Scopophilia Chair Has Got Its Eyes on You

Some people love being the center of attention. I am not one of those people. So you can just imagine how I feel about the Scopophilia chair–which is the only chair in the world that’s got a few hundred eyeballs attached all over.

ScopophiliaMy first reaction was: ‘Gah! That is so creepy.’ My second reaction was: ‘Hmm, it’s not really that bad…’ My third reaction: ‘It’s starting to grow on me.’

Then my sister walks in, sees the chair on my screen, and goes: ‘Gah!’ It’s my first reaction all over again.

Anyway, the chair is called Scopophilia for obvious reasons. Of course, I had to look it up as well, but it actually means ‘the love of looking.’ Pretty fitting, isn’t it? While it might look nice/creepy/attractive/scary (based on how you feel about eyes, in general), the fact that the chair is fitted with plastic eyeballs doesn’t make it sounds like a very comfortable one.

Scopophilia

Scopophilia was designed by Australian artist Fiona Roberts, who explains that “the excessive ‘gaze’ haunts the flesh, generating the uncomfortable feeling of being exposed.” Well, I certainly agree.
