All eyes on NYC...

I stumbled upon this pic which I had taken of one of the mosaic eyes from a subway station in New York City and thought I should perhaps figure out who created it and it's meaning.
The creators are Kristin Jones and Andrew Ginzel.
The title of the artwork is OCCULUS (or Eye) and was created in 1998.  The pieces of mosaic artwork are all throughout the Chambers Street/World Trade Center subway station.
Occulus consists of 300 different mosaic eyes...all the eyes were taken from actual photographs that were taken in a photographic study of 300 New Yorkers.  Isn't that so amazing?!

Now I want to go back to NYC and check out all 300 of these individual and unique mosaics!!
