To be inspired is such a wonderful yet enigmatic experience. It is also energetic, lively and refreshing.

Ever since I finished with the eye balls shot, I have little intention to do a series. However, on a bright Sunday morning while I was reading, suddenly I "saw" images. Images that made me feel so motivated that I couldn¡¯t help but wanted to bring them to life. It was an electrifying experience.

When I told my sister about the idea of doing the series, surprisingly she was interested. But then I have to wait for her to come back during the holidays. That gives me ample time to prepare the probs.
To make the club, I asked my assistant to find the plant in the plantation. These plants when peal will expose their wonderful texture and colors. Just nice for the primitive club. Incidentally, there was a replanting project taking place and these little plants are everywhere. To make the club as primitive as possible, I tied a stone to the stick with strings I extracted from sack.
As for the red gate, I made it from the remaining sticks. That rotten wood though, was acquired quite some time back.
When my sister finally came home, shooting begun the very next day. The wood was placed on a small table. I hung a black velvet as the background, then I positioned the eye balls and the gate on the wood. After that I asked my sister to stand behind the velvet to hit the eye balls. Shooting went smoothly. It lasted couple of hours and more than 200 shots were fired.

This is the second shot of the EyeVenture series. More to come¡­
