The Eyes Have It

The other night I was watching an old Alfred Hitchcock movie called Spellbound starring Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck. The movie interested me because some of the set design was a collaboration between Salvador Dali and Hitchcock himself.

This particular "dream sequence" in Spellbound (see image 1) reminded me of the production designs of Josef Svoboda, the Czech artist and scenic designer, for Laterna Magika (see image 2).

Shortly after becoming familiar with the works of Svoboda, I came across this instagram post from a concert goer for Katy Perry's Witness Tour concert. I'm still figuring out who designed it, maybe Es Devlin.
