如果眼球脱落,那将会怎样?出于本能,人类习惯于第一人称视角来观察世界。一旦“眼球”脱离庞大的身体系统,即成为离线器官。它滚向远处,坠落高空,沉入水底,被宠物叼走或被冲入抽水马桶。离线器官在身体之外反馈陌生的视觉经验——如动物视角、坠落视角、下水道视角等。这或许能让我们对“看”建立某种新的认知,这也是眼球“离线”的意义之所在。

基于WiFi基因和3D打印的人造眼球,是器官计划的系列之一。观众佩戴一套定制的视觉装置,内嵌视频眼镜,通过一个人造眼球——球形WiFi摄像头获取视觉。眼球每30秒自动脱落,进入离线状态。

What if our eyeball “falls off” from our body? Human-beings are used to a first-person perspective in seeing the world by nature. Once the eyeball get off from the body, it becomes the WiFi organ: it rolls to the distance, falls from the sky, sinks to the bottom, even can be carried off by pets or flushed into the toilet. Actually, there are more unconventional perspectives available, such as perspectives of animal, machine, sewage, etc. Offline Eye Project aims to broaden our perspectives, in which lies the concept of “offline”.

The artificial eyeball based on WiFi gene tech & 3D printing is a part of the Organs Project. The audiences will wear a tailored appliance, with a pair of converted Video Glasses embedded in it. Images are captured via a spherical WiFi camera: the eyeball, which falls off to offline status every half minute.
