Perception is reality, for reality means little without an observer and a resulting perspective. Aiming to speculate on the relationship between reality and perceived spaces, the project explores and questions normal human vision with purposeful physical manipulations. It proposes a hypothetical alternative way of seeing constructed by an optical device - a third-person vision of oneself. The resulted introspective vision inspires the manifesto of an architectural viewing machine of observation and solitude. The curious extension of scopes conceal the viewing while amplifies the fixed views.
