Creepy Or Genius? Artist Gives Men A Peek Into The Ladies Room
Julie Gerstein

Image

Austrian artist Alexander Riegler must really want a meeting in the ladies room, because for his latest project, he’s installed a one-way mirror in the bathroom of a local cafe in order to capture what women really do in the bathroom. Riegler swears he’s not a perv, and promises that the mirror only captures women at the sink — not the actual bathroom stalls — and says that a note is posted informing women that they’re being watched. Riegler says the project is meant to “stir people into a discussion of voyeurism and surveillance,” and as a comment on Big Brother culture. In January, the mirror will be reversed to allow women to watch men’s faces while they stand at urinals, so hooray for equal opportunity creepiness!

Hmmmm

Not sure what purpose it really showed if they were told it was a one-way mirror. Yet they should be told. Hahaa

It would be funny if where some of these mirrors were used that someone all of a sudden turned a light on in the room with the dark side of the mirror. Then both sides would see each other.

Story is not as bad as I imagined. :9

It could be mildly amusing to see women pulling faces in a mirror??

I'll wait for the highlights to show up on YT.

I think they are going to act differently knowing they are being watched.
