Starting with enlarged prints of the eyes of animals photographed in zoos around the world, Onodera superimposes a glass marble in a double exposure. The marble, like a heavenly body suspended in space, envelopes the hard and inarticulate glare of the animal eyes, creating a mysterious gaze. The illusion created by the glass marble produces a very different result here than it did in “How to Make a Pearl”.
