An artist uses a two-way mirror in a women's restroom as a source of art.

Art exhibits certainly don’t just pertain to painting or sculptures anymore. Rather than creating works of art, many artists view simple, human nature as a thing of beauty.

Recently, a Vienna café allowed for the installation of a two-way mirror to be placed between the men's and women’s bathroom, which would let men view women.

Although it may sound creepy, some privacy has been maintained, as the mirror will only allow the men to view the ladies at the sink area.

The artist behind the idea, Alexander Riegler states that he wants to “stir people into a discussion of voyeurism”.

And all may be fair in the world of bizarre art, as the women will have their turn in January when the mirror will be reversed, allowing them to watch the men’s faces as they use the urinal.

What do you think of the installation?
