CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
As part of an interactive installation, a sculpture of metal rectangle with a cut out oblong silhouette of a face with ears, and with metal eye shapes in the center, enclosed between glass sheets, mounted straight through the center with a metal pole. This work explores perception using mirrors, as an unexpected perspective is achieved when the viewer peers through the face in the sculpture, sees their eyes and meet the face of another person peering through from the other side.
