Giant eyeball.

30-Foot-Tall Eyeball

Only a couple of blocks from the DART, nice area of town. Sits in a fenced area with AstroTurf.

The eyeball now looks out from behind a fence next to the Joule Hotel in Dallas. The fence is tall but you can peer in between the bars and take a snap of the eyeball. Definitely a sight to see! (har)

They took down the eyeball one week ago. No longer there but they do have an array of other fun, large things on the property.

Giant eyeball.

30-Foot-Tall Eyeball

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."
