The ambiguity of self through other, which is to argue that we are as others see us, is another way in which many contemporary artists construct their self-portraiture.  The artist Peter Harris often does this by getting other persons to be instrumental in the making of his work.  Recently he did this getting his art world friends, often artists and writers, to draw a portrait of him (from a photograph) and thereafter he presented them as a wall-work installation by the artist Peter Harris.
