â€œA Piece of the Pieâ€ explores the participation of the physical body in the one-way relationship of visual communication. By interrupting the peripheral vision of the observer, it requires movement in order to attain the entire image. Forming a wall of visual interruptions the installation aims to disorient and intrigue the viewer.
