Perfect View is an interactive sculpture that personifies the human desire to always show one's best side to others.

Entering the gallery space, the viewer encounters a badly damaged Cloissoné vase, mounted on a white plinth. When the viewer comes within a few metres of the piece, the vase begins to turn silently, adjusting its position so as to always show the viewer a perfect view of its undamaged side.

The result is a visual experience where, in effect, imperfection is edited out.
