This candle holder consists of individualized eyes swirling up the length of the candle. While everyone has masks on, often the only thing visible are their eyes. As someone who has difficulty recognizing faces in general, a masked world makes every face look the same. Although each eye in the candle is distinct with its own color, pupil shape, and eyelashes, all the eyes blend together into one long twisting shape. It’s a dizzying world out there. The eyes are watching, passively or judgmentally or hungrily or sadly; its anonymity to a fault, and perceiving without being truly perceived.
