This interactive structure hides characteristics shaped by societal influences (such as clothing and hairstyle) and encourages the participants to focus on the fundamental qualities of a human being. It is activated when two participants decide to put on the headphones and look through the rectangular opening. The headphones allow each participant to hear the sound of the other person’s breathing and a mirror allows them to make direct eye contact.
