Eyes That Do Not See
Eyes That Do Not See (or Eyes for short) is a tossup-only visual arts tournament by Mike Bentley, presented in visual form. With its first iteration coming in 2010, Eyes is the earliest side event to use the visual format that it pioneered.
The tournament The Act of Seeing With One's Own Eyes was named in reference to Eyes.
As of 2019, there have been ten incarnations of the tournament, with seemingly no end in sight. Mike has stated that he could do 10,000 extremely hard Eyes, and that the challenge is always finding easy material in new ways.
