Crazy Eyes, New York Times.
Victo Ngai
I drew some crazy eyes for New York Times’s Sunday Technology page. The article is online now and will be in this Sunday’s paper. (March 18th). Many bifocal glasses wearers have to bob their heads up and down for the right focuses when looking at computer screens, a new type of lens is introduced to ease this strain.
Due to time constrain, AD Minh and I started working on this piece before the article was written. So we only had a rough concept to work with. Minh liked what I did with the “The ghost of tax return” for the NYT a month back and suggested we could use a similar approach to show someone staring at the screen with their head bobbing up and down. I usually like to come up with my own ideas, but this time I found the idea suggested very fun and was happy to play along. It turned out to be a great collaboration, thanks Minh for all the insightful inputs!
