View Change is a series of eyewear that questions typical viewing behaviour and grants new perspectives by combining carefully positioned mirrors to a range of goggle-like structures. Its concept and design emerged from the challenges of seeing in a crowd.
The periscope-glasses augment the body’s normal viewing capabilities, extending the wearer’s line of sight and offering additional ones. The result is a wearable periscope that reflects different viewing angles through refraction, allowing the wearer to see from new perspectives from an elevated angle, as well as the side and rear. At the same time, the periscope effect also allows others to connect with the wearer’s altered viewpoint, thus inspiring new methods of communication.
