[ISEA2012] Artist Talk: William Wilson — eyeDazzler Project

Artist Statement

eyeDazzler 1, 2012: 76,050 4mm glass beads, gel-spun polyethylene superline.

The eyeDazzler project combines traditional Navajo weaving and design with QR codes that
lead viewers to the project’s website. It is a transcustomary collaborative expression, which
brings together innovation, traditional Diné design, 76,050 4mm glass beads, over 1,000 hours
of artistic labor, and a portal to another dimension.
