Warning: Do Not Look the Sculpture in the Eyes

That's what the sign at the museum said. Naturally, that's the first thing that visitors tried to do.

This is Do Not Look into the Eyes, an interactive sculpture by Norwegian artist Erik Pirolt. It's a ceramic head inside a glass container. Affixed to the container is a simple warning: don't look the sculpture in the eyes. When people did so, water sprayed out of the empty eye sockets of the sculpture, right at the visitor.
