interspecies05 :: spider vision mechanism

I decided to quit playing with form this week and to prototype the mechanic of the interaction. Using 1/16″ dia. wire and small 1″ dia. mirrors, I roughed out the angles needed to bring light from the side of my head and behind my head to my cone of vision. Wearing the¬†headgear¬†is a little disorienting at first, and after a few minutes of wearing it I developed a headache.

However! After some practice, I got pretty good at switching between the mirrors and even looking at multiple things in different mirrors at once. I’ve been wearing this thing for a couple hours now and though I still have a slight headache, I’m getting pretty good with it.
