CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
An interactive installation consists of 25 mirror face forms suspended by metal wire at different eye levels. The mirror faces are long oblong silhouette with ears; the eyes and the rectangular center are cut out allowing the viewer to look through the eyeholes. This work explores perception using mirrors, as an unexpected perspective is achieved when the viewer peers through the eyes-hole in their mirrored face and meet the eyes of another person peering through from the other side.
