Philosopher's Room Detail
Entering the gallery, viewers encountered a pole with a ringed end hanging from the ceiling. The ring supported a horizontal glass bottle. The bottle was suspended above an open-sided box. Looking inside the box, viewers discovered a miniature version of the pole and bottle, and their reflection in a one-way mirror. The miniature version could also be viewed from outside the box, looking through the window. As viewers moved around the installation, they discovered multiple versions of the original pole and bottle, which became the subject of an insightful investigation into perspective.
