X’ing? Look both ways

The installation explores the distortion of perception created by walls. A brick maze is embedded with a succession of porcelain eyes, the pupils made of lenses recovered from dismantling obsolete televisions, that the artist, mechanic’s bag in hand, scoured the countryside for. The stories of the people she met and the knowledge that these lenses were once used for projection is buried in the DNA of the work. Looking through the lenses inverts everything on the other side; a window into the mind’s eye, or a question about where reality and perception meet?
