The painting that watches you


From the MAKE Flickr photo pool

Lorier painted “Old Man Shifty” here and then added animated eyes recreating a classic haunted house prop. She employed a Parallax board plus sensors to track movement and trigger the animation – spot-on perfect!

Painting with moving eyes

    He, he, he. In high school I had a sketch of George Harrison. I removed the eyes and drew them on a piece of paper behind. Then I would hold up the sketch to show people and gently move the paper behind with my thumbs. I did this to a girl who was stoned 1st hour class, she freaked out. People said “that wasn’t funny’, but it was!!!
