LOCATION:   Near College and Spadina
SHOT BY:   Martinho
FIELD NOTES:   Perhaps inspired by studies that have found that people behave more honestly when they are watched—even if just by eyes on a poster—this work puts a large set of watchful eyes on a downtown street. Of course, the gaze of the eyes has done little to curb vandalism.
