Seattle-based artist OctoEyes (aka Ron Smith) works in a variety of media (flame, metal, ceramics, plastic, electronics, etc.) to actualize his unorthodox visions. Strongly influenced by a steady diet of post-apocalyptic fiction, scuba diving, and exploration, his works span scales small and large.
“Interactive art is my primary focus. Watching people discover their own impact and effects – especially in simple, fun things – keeps me creating. It’s important that we all have a sense of agency and understanding of our power to change things.”
