The kinetic installation is a homage to French film director Jacques Tati (1907−1982) and his movie classic ‘Mon Oncle’ (1958), a choreographed comedy about man’s confusion and adaption in the age of early modernism.

“Monocle creates a playful catalyst to reflect on our struggles to live up to the ideal of a modern urban lifestyle, on the nature of technological advance, on the notion of surveillance and the relationship between private and public space.”
