Milan is the city of choice for the second to last appointment with The Art of Attentiveness, the light installation designed by artist Gerry Hofstetter which transforms the façades of important buildings into dynamic works of art. The artist projects eyes and looks onto the façade to encourage greater awareness of interpersonal relationships and visual contact between people.
His works recall the imaginary images of Kryps, the Polish artist featured in the storytelling in Architecture on the web, the volume edited by Paolo Schianchi.
In Milan the installation is projected onto the wall of Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology and the images of eyes alternate with images of Leonardo da Vinci’s sketches about flight.
The last installation will be projected in Switzerland, and it will be possible to participate by sending a “selfie” of your own eyes to the site: swiss.com/attentiveness
