Peep Show blurs the boundaries between the entertainer and the entertained in a way that is both impulsively humorous and unsettlingly carnivalesque. Hundreds of anthropomorphic eyeballs dangle in the window, watching the passing parade. These ridiculous and unnerving objects put the viewers on the spot as the pupils fix upon the viewer, twisting the subject/object relationship into a “who sees who” game. Peep Show creates an absurd carnival of role shifting between performer and performance, which is discomforting, beguiling, and irresistible.
