- Description →
A composition of 25 panels of five different sizes are mounted on three walls about one inch from the wall.Â When the room becomes quiet, 509 black silhouettes of tiny creatures slowly start to creep out from the panels. At first they only peep over the edge, but after a while they move further out, as if observing the viewer with their white hand drawn eyes. All of the creatures move slightly differently from each other, creating a life-like feel similar to that of squirrels or mice. A small sound in the room will make some the creatures disappear behind the edge of the panel, while others retreat to ‘peep’ position. A louder sound will make all go fully into hiding in a split second and stay there for a while.
