Eyebombing

EyebombingI had no idea that this was a thing, but now that I know about it I am insanely eager to participate.

Eyebombing is the act of sticking googly eyes on inanimate things in public places. That’s all there is to it. There’s a blog, a Flickr pool and a Facebook page, all devoted to the idea of “humanizing the world, one googly eye at a time.”

To get started, all you have to do is get yourself some peel-and-stick googly eyes at your local craft store–they’re oddly specific about the eyes being the wiggly sort, rather than plain stickers–and then go…stick ’em to things. (You’ll obviously want to take care not to stick them anywhere that they might ruin the finish or peel off paint.) You can optionally take photos and submit them to the Eyebombing site, or you can simply go along in anonymity, secure in the knowledge that you’ve made everyone’s day just a little bit more surreal.

    I wish I were a technocrat like you so my SOPA protest worked that well. Bravo.

    And as I tend to anthropomorphize everything in sight (as well as talk to said inanimate objects) as soon as this snow lets up I am buying some googly eyes to keep in my purse. This is going to be fun.

    Thanks! Once again, you rock. SOPA sucks.

    Bravo. Kudos. Applause. SOPA stinks on ice.

    And hooray for googly eyes – to make everything just a tad more startling. Gotta keep on my toes, and if I think the toaster is watching me, well…
