Pipilotti Rist

This image documented by Pipilottie Rist is a great example of balance. While not completely symmetrical, the image does mirror throughout the piece from a vertical line of reference (splitting the eyes and roughly down the nose and lips). The fulcrum is blurred by the squished nose and lips, however, which makes for an interesting and engaging composition.The slight imbalance/asymmetry and morphing of expected, traditional body parts in the image gives a sense of entrapment and smothering.
