Yiqing Cai

Holding this "eye"brooch in your hand enables you to see yourself though your own eyes, when looking at the back peace of the brooch, which is polished to a mirror-like effect

These active eyes with backing are a common and cheap handmade material in our daily life. This "eye" is redefined in this brooch. These numerous eyes inside the brooch seem to be looking straight at your eyes through a dim glass cover forming this brooch, giving an appearance of bacteria growing inside a laboratory petri dish. However this "petri dish" can be turned continuously, which brings us back to the original features of these wobbly eyes or "play".
