I am interested in the link between art and technology, how the eyes prioritize, and reality as a subjective experience vs. an absolute truth. As a visual artist, I cannot think of a topic more stimulating and yet so basic, than the act of seeing--how the human brain makes sense of the visual world.-Devorah Sperber, 2004


1. (left) Installation and detail views
"After The Mona Lisa 2," 2005 (ed. of 3)
5,184 spools of thread, aluminum ball chain and hanging apparatus, clear acrylic sphere, steel stand (85” h x 86” w)

Unlike the original painting, in which the illusion of the smile is subtle, in my rendition Mona Lisa's elusive smile appears, changes, and disappears in a dramatic and humorous fashion.

Description: a life-sized rendering of da Vinci's Mona Lisa constructed from 425 spools of thread. When seen through a clear sphere, the thread spools condense into a recognizable image, conveying how little information the eyes and brain need.

Overall, my current series exemplifies my interest in visual perception, the link between art, science, and technology, repetitive processes, truth of materials, the feminist art proposition of bringing genres into "high art." - Devorah Sperber, 2006
