Today’s prosthetic eyes are fully custom made to match the wearer’s companion eye and in Australia there are only very few businesses working in this specialty field. Join oculists from Brisbane’s Artificial Eyes to learn how they manufactured customised artificial eyes for their clients. This is a fine and highly technical process, which includes moulding, shaping, painting and polishing the customised prosthesis, and the outcomes are not always what you would expect. Agency by Design also features an historic collection of glass eyes, this is an opportunity to learn more about its creation and legacy for contemporary prosthetic ocular manufacture. This fascinating talk will be held in the exhibition.
