BANANAFEELYEYE is a three piece sculpture created in 1990 for the Impresssion 5 Science Museum in Lansing, Michigan with support from the Michigan Council for the Arts.
 The main piece is a large triangular relief, twenty-two feet wide and nine feet high.  It wraps around the main landing of the Museum's entrance stairs and is designed to greet visitors as they enter the Museum.  The right half of the relief is an assemblage of natural materials. 
The left half is constructed of man-made components.  All materials were selected for their tactile qualities.  Visitors are encouraged to touch the relief.  The materials and visitors' interactions with them were tested with a preliminary sculpture, "Bee" installed in the museum for several months.
Embedded in the relief are forty, red automotive signal lights, a clear, one inch diameter tube containing colored liquids, two thermally sensitive liquid crystal panels that, when touched, change color and emit the sounds of birds and frogs, and a fan that sometimes blows banana scented air at visitors.  These four active elements are controlled by a computer that senses visitors by their body heat, noise, and by them touching the heat sensitive panels.
A giant eyeball one foot in diameter rises out of the apex of the main triangle to a height of fifteen feet. Hidden in the eyeball is a TV camera that sees and hears what the eye is watching. A TV monitor on a funky console is located elsewhere in the Museum.  It displays the scene with sounds and includes the joy-stick which points the eyeball. Visitors are invited to operate the eyeball which observes people entering the Museum.  Visitors may press a button on the console  which lights up the eyeball.
A small bunch of white fabric hangs above the main relief. A second button on the remote consol inflates the fabric to become an eight foot tall question mark. If the button is pushed again, the question mark deflates.

Although the artist feels there is symbolic meaning in this artwork, he prefers not to comment on it.  He says that too many people will accept his interpretation as the only one, and he doesn't want to limit the numerous meanings suggested by the piece.
