The Vision Construction is an exploration of vision through the appendages, and the effect of this alteration upon our perception. It proposes an evolution of the human body—an inner gutter system which transports the eyes to new sockets in the extremities.

The model seeks to understand the effects of having the eyes in two completely different areas at the same time—testing whether this vision would heighten our perception, or if instead, the effects of our inner parallax would render these images incomprehensible. The model creates, through a series of angled mirrors, the impression of sight through the hand in the left eye while maintaining regular vision in the right. An electronic motor system allows the user to see in multiple directions through the hand (posterior, lateral, and inferior) by redirecting the path of light with a change of mirror angles.
