Description
Robert Ziller is an artist and a poet. Remembering a drawing by Man Ray in which a woman's face was represented with reflective eyes, he has installed mirrored glass in the two windows on the upper floor of the façade of 1414 Monterey, transforming the building into a portrait. It meets the visitor with a mutual gaze. Museum Eyes Mirror Window Souls Look In / Look Out! I'll Tell You Something: Every Now And Then This Building Takes A Walk Around The Block.
