Eye on Silver Lake

Photo by Sandy Driscoll

Silver Lake — What the heck was that? That’s what Sandy Driscoll thought when she spotted this giant replica of an eyeball staring out from a lawn on West Silver Lake Drive.

“I did an about turn, parked, grabbed my camera and got this shot,” said Sandy. “This was quite amazing……a Silver Lake eyeball!”

  1. Sandy’s great-nephew Bodhi (age 9) thinks it’s a prank. 🙂

  2. This definitely looks like the work of Skyler, the Silverlake artist who, along with girlfriend, Ramona, also made the awesome Spider Sculpture decorating their front lawn on Sanborn Ave (along with a newer heart structure they put up for Valentines).

  3. reminds me of the v. cool / intense Tony Tasset sculpture of an eye I’ve seen in Dallas:

  4. Hm. It is the definitive “eye on YOU!”

  5. New fun to look security system.

  6. Clearly they’re fans of The Myoclonic Jerk Podcast. Check out the logo…

  7. The Hummer update is wonderful. I think Sandy documented their lives so far very well. Keep the stories and pictures coming. Just such a loving story.
