Observations consisted of a transparent maze-like structure that controlled how viewers moved through the installation. After entering through a marked opening, viewers found a shelf containing an ant farm at the end of the first corridor. A small camera mounted behind the ant farm transmitted a live video to a projector in the next room. Because of the physical separation between the ant farm and the live video projection, viewers could not watch themselves watching the ant farm, but could watch others that entered after they did (last three images).
