Looking through the key hole

Have you ever wanted to peek into another room by looking through the key hole? It seems that the artist who created this art piece is playing on that normal human urge to peek through the key hole. We saw this at the 2011 Armory Show, and regret that we didn’t catch the name of the artist who made it, but it would seem that the whole purpose of this piece was to see how many people get the urge to look in the key hole. There wasn’t anything to see, so we guess it is meant to provoke that response from the viewer without giving them any reward with anything to see. Hmm, I guess this is “art that makes you go ‘huh?'”
