Picture for Women

This is ‘Picture for Women’, by Jeff Wall:

Picture for Women
It was shown in a recent lecture, and the teacher, trying to extract anything from sleepy students, asked someone to describe it. Doofus here decided to have a go.

I’ve seen this picture lots of times. Afaik it’s all about The Gaze1 but I didn’t need to go into that – I just had to describe the contents. I thought I was doing ok, then someone said ‘mirror?’ and my brain pulled a muscle. Turns out describing the contents was a lot more difficult than I expected.

I won’t say anything else, but if you fancy a puzzling couple of minutes check out the large version here. Is quite fun.
