Cyclops is the name of an ancient one- eyed monster from Greek mythology. And also the name of my graduation project at Sint Lucas 2010. The one eyed monster is a reference to the camera, who unlike us humans only have one eye.
For this research project, I decided to start working on the connection between reality and it's photographic expression. As the project ventured on, I started building and re-building lenses and thus re-designing the way images are created. One of these lenses used a piece of rubber to achieve a tilt effect shifting focus in a none conventional way. By using simple household objects like mirror's and spoons, I was able to re-create my reality.
