New York-based artist Kristin Anderson has created a conceptual piece carefully executed to be a humorous, unsettling and provocative comment on perceptions of both self and other. Messages scroll across signboards mounted below bathroom mirrors, the text timed to appear in matched pairs referring to "him" and "her." Word sets include "chocoholic / alcoholic", "intelligent / intellectual," and "dieting / sober".
