The Peephole

The Peephole

The PEEEPHOLE debuted at the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts Creative Code Showcase on March 30, 2016 in San Francisco, CA.

The peephole is a device that lets us see without being seen. Much like the internet. Yet even when our glances are innocent it’s something we’d rather keep private.

By publicizing the viewer’s private act of viewing, he will be forced to confront his own sense of privacy, both online and off, as well as the simultaneous thrill and shame of voyeurism.
