The 30-foot-tall eyeball stares once more! Until 2010 it glared from a park in downtown Chicago. Now it's been reassembled in Sparta, Wisconsin, where it casts its withering gaze outside the headquarters of F.A.S.T. Corp. (F.A.S.T. built the eyeball, as well as many of America's other giant roadside statues). Although its presence in Sparta is technically temporary -- until artist Tony Tassert finds someone who wants to buy it -- we were told that the eyeball might stay on display outside F.A.S.T. for some time. "There's really not a huge demand for it," said F.A.S.T. production manager Mike Wield, "unless you own a company like Visine."[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 04/19/2012]
