In Open ego, a large glass sphere, the back portion of whose surface has been covered with a mirror finish and painted flat black, is displayed on a stand. Looking into the sphere, the viewer sees himself placed within the context of the surrounding space, a spatial context exaggerated by the wide-angle of the mirror’s convex surface. The sphere serves as an optical device, offering visitors distorted views of not only the visitor but also their entire environment.

Partially silvered glass sphere, stainless steel, paint (black), rubber ring
