This piece is contemplative, and at times reveals just how hard the machine is trying to see, to truly understand what is going on.
When the viewer approaches the piece he first sees a mirror, a projection showing the room he is in. But as he gets closer the mirror refuses to show the viewer's face, showing his back instead.
The installation talks to Magritte's painting, but while Magritte was talking about the gaze of the collector and what is behind the painting, this one adds the gaze of the painting itself, while keeping up the conversation about the human condition and the substance of art.
