DISSOLVE MIRROR

2015

The Dissolve Mirror provides a baseline for understanding my work. The center of the mirror is completely reflective and creates a disruptive gradient toward the transparent edges, The result of the transition is three levels of visibility; the reflected environment and self, the background behind the glass and the partial reflections of the clear glass. I consider the project to be an instrument for sight, or rather the disruption of sight. Whereas we can typically blur visual "noise" or fragmentation to view the whole, the mirror renders this action difficult. The eye can not easily focus on the space between the splotches of reflectance and anxiously searches for points of relief. From the multitude of silvered glass spots an image is attempted to be constructed, only to lose sight and focus on the background.
