Right Before Your Eyes--Detail
2009
Mixed media--digital image mounted on interior wooden window shutter; one-way mirror and text behind slats.
21.5" x 12" x 3"
The artwork is intended to be hung in a window to be viewed from the outside and also from inside the room. When viewed from outside the piece appears to simply be a white-framed mirror. Inside, when the slats are opened, the viewer sees the text superimposed over the one-way mirror that allows a view of what is happening outside.

Text on the slat bar reads:

"Mommy! The new babysitter is a magician!"

Text on slats read:

"ABRACADABRA" (repeats on each slat)

Text on one-way mirror behind slats reads:

"He can make white stuff come out of his pee-pee!"
