Metal, glass.

Eye-I-Eye-I-Eye-I “introduces an astounding interpersonal intimacy through a machine, albeit a very simple one. Face-shaped two-sided mirrors are suspended between the ceiling and floor on wires. When two people stand on either side of a mirror, each person sees her or his face reflected but with the eyes of the other person. This bizarre merging experience begs questions of individual and collective identities. The 36 mirrors in the gallery enable participants to imagine a communal experience, as if they shared experience of only two is too narrow and confrontational.”
