In the Eye of the Beholder Tour
The Eye of the Beholder exhibition (Nov 09 - Feb 10) formed part of Darwin200.
Description: In response to Darwin's iconic description of the development of the eye, Schenk drew on novel biomimetic techniques and paint-technology to create artworks inspired by the astonishingly realistic eyespots adorning the wings of the rare moth Erebus obscura.
