CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
An interactive sculpture of a white front angular oval silhouette of a face with eye-holes on glass, mounted straight through the center with an aluminum pole fixed to a white wood 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.

PLEASE NOTE that the Ottawa Art Gallery and OAG Shop will close at 6 PM on Thursday, December 1st. The European Union Film Festival will continue as scheduled that evening.
