A more subjective interaction is required when Loher‘s world is revealed through multiple openings in the circular Miniverse sculptures. The sense of viewing a universe is the same, but this time there is a radical change in the way the work is delivered. Having to get close to the work emphasises its voyeuristic aspect as the observer becomes more aware of his or her role. Other visitors seeing someone peering at a hole have a broader view, one that encompasses the sculpture and the audience involved in a unique performance or living sculpture.
