The Roaming Eyeball is a large steel sphere with a digital video camera mounted internally. The Eyeball is rolled arond the streets of Kitchener while the video camera documents its path. I am interested in seeing what an "eye" can see when it is dislocated from a body. The subsequent video projection merges the terrestrial and the celestial and exposes the absurdity of having a part of the body freed from its whole.
