The artist, by creating this piece, aimed to bypass vanity or self-consciousness during the act of looking at oneself. Individuals can look at themselves in a disengaged or disinterested way and get a view of how they appear rather than what they wish or fear that they look like. In reality, Hallifax believes that it is a pointless exercise, as people can never see what they really look like. Therefore the artist is interested in the fascinating struggle to attempt to reach beyond or outside oneself.
