cy·clo·pi·a

(sī-klō'pē-ă),
A congenital defect in which the two orbits are united to form a single cavity containing one eye, which typically results from union of the right and left optic primordia, usually combined with holoprosencephaly or cyclencephaly.
[G. Kyklōps, fr. kyklos, circle, + ōps, eye]
Farlex Partner Medical Dictionary © Farlex 2012
The presence of a single, large centrally located eye—which may be a non-functional, if present, proboscis—and a single upper front incisor. It is caused by a failure of the embryonic prosencephalon to properly divide the orbits of the eye into two cavities, possibly related to a defect in cholesterol transport

Such joco-serious tendencies are visible in the perfect muteness of Moot (all works 2014), for instance, a hyperreal life-size trio (stringless acoustic guitar, microphone, stool) that proposes the equipment for an intimate concert of silence; in the tiny Cyclopean eye of See, a minuscule eyeball wedged in the opposite corner of the room like a downsca led, anthropomorphized recasting of his untitled gum-ball piece of 1990; and in the improbable Purple Balloon, a doppelganger object so precisely resembling its subject that it thwarts the usual circuitry of signifier and signified.
