The easiest, lowest-investment neighborhood improvement you can make: eye bombing

By on Apr 12th

I am a sucker for googly eyes. I keep buying them. FOR NO REASON. When I pass them in an aisle I black out, only coming to as I walk out of the store, several packs of googly eyes in my bag.

Finally, I have a use for them: eyebombing. What is eyebombing?

Eyebombing is the act of setting googly eyes on inanimate things in the public space.

Ultimately the goal is to humanize the streets, and bring sunshine to people passing by.

Oh I am IN! You know I'm way into bringing art to one's neighborhood, and this is an easy, cheap, low-risk way to do it — and you could even eye bomb around your office to liven it up! Here are a few great eyebombing finds, courtesy Eyebombing.com.

I love this one's caption: "I'm a spoiled railing. People pet me all day!"

As always, if you have photos of your own eyebombings, I hope to see them in the Offbeat Home Flickr pool.
