Giant glasses 2016

Start of a new project about glasses/light/vision. I have worn glasses for most of my life, and feel very ambivalent about them. I can't get along without them, and they have saved my eyes on more than one occasion, but they limit the range of activities I am comfortable doing and are a narrow portal of clarity on the world. A defining constraint for me, for better or worse-- much as art needs constraints to define a creative space for a particular project. These giant glasses are from the bottoms of large liquor bottles. An artifact from an earlier age of giants?, or just a drinker's impression of himself and the world as having larger possibilities that are a bit fuzzy as yet.
