Elizabeth's Filter

1984
wood, glass, bamboo, brass
18" x 6" x 6"

A generic one gallon glass bottle filled with water serves as a metaphor for the human body; hence, the statement "70% of the fat free body weight is water." Placed behind the glass gallon is a bamboo X fitted with brass end pieces. Light refraction through the water transforms the X into an infinity sign, which appears to be inside the bottle. This illusion comments upon the subjectivity of sensory experience.
