“Eyes” is an interactive, biometric data artwork that transforms humans' iris data into musical sound and 3D-animated image. The idea behind "Eyes" is to allow the audience to explore their own identities through unique visual and sound elements generated by their own iris. Selected iris images are printed as 3D sculptures, and these replay the sound and visually projects 3D-converted images. This research-based artwork utilizes an experimental system which generates distinct sounds by using visual features such as colors, patterns, brightness, and size of the iris. The aesthetically beautiful, mesmerizing, and a bit 'uncanny valley'-affected artwork can create a personalized art experience and multi-sensory interpretations of data art, which in turn create their own sonic signature.
