Peeping Hole (2010)
Collaboration work of Naoaki Fujimoto and Kenichi Okada
People often find it embarrassing when others, including the society, know about your personal attributes that you usually keep hidden from them. For example, you should feel very ashamed if others see you naked, or if your habits or personal preferences are revealed.
With this exhibit, when you look into the peephole, people around you can tell which part of the picture, located at the end of the peephole, you are looking at. In other words, the direction of your eyes, or what you are really looking at, something that you usually think others have no way of knowing, is exposed.
It is a first-ever interesting experience for those around you too, looking inside your head. But what I really want you to experience is the new sense of embarrassment you feel after you look into the peephole, when you realize that those around you know what, and which part in particular, you were staring at.
This work is exhibited at "The Definition of Self" directed by Masahiko Sato in 21_21 DESIGN SITE Tokyo.
