About the artwork
The interplay of colours and images that are contained in each of the glass spheres that form this work are resplendent and intriguing on their own, and contribute depth to the overall portrait. Viewed from afar, the image is a lush expanse of suggestion - the woman’s cryptic gaze is beguiling, while upon closer inspection, Jantzen generates a captivating narrative with the assembled mosaic, that explores the notion of surveillance that is increasingly prevalent in modern societies. Each node forms a connection, taking the viewer on a wondrous exploration of multiple environments while making a striking social statement.
