In the form of a traditional screen, Superflat Jellyfish Eyes I is a painting on silk covered with a constellation of coloured eyes in flat, perspectiveless form.

Inspired by a Manga character of a ghost covered in eyes, Murakami uses the jellyfish eyes motif on a variety of materials. The eyes are open, half-shut or shut, large and small. The almost psychedelic repetitive effect creates a strange, even uneasy response in the viewer, who literally feels as if they are being watched.
