There Are Very Few Things In This World That Cannot Be Improved With The Addition Of Googly Eyes

German artist Tim Schneider knows this.

Hence his ongoing mission to anthropomorphise the world with an endless supply of styrofoam and ping-pong balls with cartoon pupils drawn on.

He calls this temporary public art project ‘They Live’

Interviewed recently by Turnstyle magazine Schneider said of his work:

The eyeballs explain something difficult like perception very easy. It changes the purpose of things: a trash bin can be the Cookie Monster. The world around suddenly isn’t something fixed anymore, it’s something you can change. People are realizing this very optimistic opinion with a smile on their faces, more than I ever could have asked for.
