Austrian artist Alexander Riegler must really want a meeting in the ladies room, because for his latest project, he’s installed a one-way mirror in the bathroom of a local cafe in order to capture what women really do in the bathroom.

Riegler says the project is meant to “stir people into a discussion of voyeurism and surveillance,” and as a comment on Big Brother culture. In January, the mirror will be reversed to allow women to watch men’s faces while they stand at urinals, so hooray for equal opportunity creepiness! [Huffington Post]
