Invisible Wall (2021)

Invisible Wall, somewhat ironically, is a grand living room wall standing in the midst of the space. At the back of the installation, a monitor with a surveillance camera is mounted. Through a small peephole in the wall, you can view the image on the monitor: a live feed of two small stickers. This artwork is a monumental articulation of a simple viewing mechanism, playfully orchestrating who sees what and from which angle, thus creating a sense of illusion.
