CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
An interactive sculpture of a white front oblong silhouette of a face with ears and eye-holes, on a rectangular glass with a frame, mounted straight through the center with a square aluminum pole fixed to a metal stand. This work explores perception using mirrors, as an unexpected perspective is achieved when the viewer peers through the eyes in the sculpture and meet the eyes of another person peering through from the other side.
