Eyeglass Curtains

Yet another pair of reading glasses with a snapped stem or a popped-out lens? Here I've turned what has been a periodic annoyance into a new decor concept: eyeglass curtains.

The frames of the broken reading glasses have been paired up with negatives from old photos. In this case, all images are from Oakland's Chinatown. The result is a combination of my Seeing project and a past assemblage on Inuit ghost windows.

Because I suspect that all of my reading glasses will continue to break I plan to continue this project, adding glasses to the curtains as time goes by.
