Artist's Description

Central to the image is the unseeing eye. It is symbolic of authority. It looks forward, denying both the dark and the light behind it.

The unseeing eye is made up of governments and corporations and everyday people. It is the unseeing eye because it chooses not to see. It refuses to acknowledge either the dark or the light. Instead, the unseeing eye creates a whole new narrative, designed to stop others from seeing what it refuses to acknowledge.

It is not that the unseeing eye does not know. I suspect the unseeing eye knows more than you or I will ever understand. It’s power, the power of authority, lies in everyday people not seeing, nor knowing, the darkness or the light.

Pilgrims approach, wanting to know the dark and the light, but the unseeing eye stands forever in the way. The unseeing eye claims itself to know and teach all that is dark and light. Through schools and laws and customs and taboos, and a thousand other tricks of the mind, the unseeing eye fixes the pilgrims path on subservience to it’s will, without the pilgrim even knowing.

Unseeing begins at the moment of birth. Born to unseeing. Educated by unseeing. Ruled by unseeing. Every living moment seen by the unseeing to unsee.

A closer look at the unseeing eye shows the outline to be everyday people. Together, they surround the inner workings, the governments and the corporations, and insulate them from the light and the dark. An unbroken line, in a hijacked pilgrimage that ends only in death without meaning or value.

But if everyday people could turn their heads just a little to see. They would see both the light and the dark. They would no longer be the unseeing. Their pilgrimage would end. A meaning might be found. The value of their journey might be realised. A new journey might begin.

Then what would become of the unseeing eye? When it’s boundary begins to disintegrate and fall apart? When everyday people no longer hold it together?
