a child looks in the mirror
and is confused...which is real, and which a reflection?
Two kinds of invisibility:
They may see what they project onto us (the gaze).
They may what what we project (skin, veil, clothing).
Either way, they don't see us.
How does the mirror work?
How do we see?
How does a gaze define?
Can we see reality?
What creates perception?
