Half Truth
Clear Solid Acrylic Half-Ball, diameter 2.5" - 3" (6.35 cm - 7.62 cm), lenticular print

Truth is based on half-truths weather the context is politics, philosophy, religion or ideology. Half Truth reveals numerous blind spots by questioning the existence of any truth or total vision. The eye captures its owner's world, returns his/her gaze, blinks and reflects what's above and around, while what's underneath and beyond remains hidden.
To possess Half Truth is to constantly be reminded of all its implications.

When you look at the sphere from above at different angles the eye will blink. From the side the sphere will reflect the viewer and the space where it is located. Half Truth can be picked up and kept on a table or shelf.
