Jud Turner’s Lotus Eaters

Jud Turner‘s latest sculpture, Lotus Eaters:

“My latest sculpture, ‘Lotus Eaters’, was inspired by characters from Homer’s Odyssey. The Lotophagi (lotus eaters) feed on a soporific plant which causes them to forget their homelands and live apathetic, uncaring lives. Their diet causes them to be sleepy and languid, as well as disinterested in the world around them. In my version, the lotus plants being consumed are media, depicted by the warped reflections of the 8 individuals gazing at themselves, further distorted and recorded by their repeated third-eye surveillance lenses.”
