CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
As part of an interactive installation, a sculpture of a round silhouette of a mirror face with oblong shape eye-holes, 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 eyes in the sculpture and meet the eyes of another person peering through from the other side.
