This work is an experience of space in terms of visibility and invisibility in private spaces. I am interested in how private spaces are related to public spaces, and this work creates a private space that is always in a public space. In the installation, a viewer enters a wooden frame with reflective, mirror-like film enclosing the sides. The room must be dark so that inside of the box can be lit up. This turns the inside of the box into a “mirror box.” People outside the box can completely see in, but the person inside cannot see out. The viewer inside only sees himself or herself. The visibility and invisibility of space is important to define private space. I replicated the experience of being in a space that is private yet permits others to watch you without your noticing.
