The Reflection, 2011

    80 mirrors, monitor, small camera, steel frame


    80 mirrors mounted on a steel framework reflect the viewers movements in the exhibition space. Mounted amongst the many mirrors is one video monitor of equal size. The monitor is connected to a small camera which displays a video image of the viewers passing in front of the work. People are generally accustomed to seeing their reflection in mirrors and perceive the reflection as correct. When the viewers see their image in the video monitor they perceive a strange sensation of themselves because the video image is opposite to the images reflected in the mirrors.
