You’ve probably used your computer to generate funhouse effects on photographs before — smearing someone’s face into a surrealist masterpiece or smudging someone’s nose clean off. It’s fun the first time you “goo” a graphic. But the shock effect wears out quickly — when you’ve seen it once, you’ve seen it a million times.
But there’s something genuinely disturbing about prodding Arseiam’s Eyes. I can’t put my finger on it. The concept isn’t new, but it somehow creeps me out every time.
Be sure to click around and visit all the bizarre graphic experiments on Arseiam’s page and see if you can find another favorite of mine: “the illegible poetry generator.”
