I had never been to the old ICA or the new one, so going to the ICA was mind blowing. I was amazed by the work that was being displayed in such a small space. The work was only on the topfloor, but the building is a work of art on its own. The interior architecture and space made want to just look around every corner.

Cai Guo Qiang

As I walked into the supervision show these two circles with maroon and green painted bulls eyes peared rght back at me. I was trance by the airbrushed circles that made my mind disappear as my vision blurred. I walked to and from for about five minutes and felt an overwhelming sense of being uncomfortable. I wanted to keep looking but my eyes said no that is enough.

I found as I looked at every piece I felt this sense of being uncomfortable with myself and my surroundings.I wanted to bring that feeling to my piece. I wanted the viewer to make decisions on what they wanted to do. When I left the ICA I felt that I was really drawn to the illusion and how our eyes can trick our mind. This brought me back o my childhood when you would look at optical illusions.
