I may find eyeballs pretty disturbing (honestly, you stare too hard at me and I get goosebumps), but I have to admit that the Tony Tasset 'EYE' sculpture is impressive. Modeled after the artist's own eye, it is located in Pritzker Park, Chicago.

Although not necessarily well-received by Chicago residents, the Tony Tasset 'EYE' 30-foot installation will surely grab its own fair share of stares. Made using "8,000 and 9,000 pounds of fiberglass and another 9,000 pounds of steel," according to Fast Company, how could it not get this kind of attention?
