Two-Way Mirror Mobile, composed of four circular two-way mirrors, takes inspiration from Alexander Calder’s kinetic sculptures and Dan Graham’s two-way mirror pavilions. Observing the suspended mirror installation as it gradually rotates, viewers are confronted with an unusual perspective of their surroundings, resulting from the overlap and movement of the reflections against the backdrop of the surrounding space. Fragments of the room are suddenly juxtaposed next to or in front of one another; layered images provide views that could not be seen simultaneously with the naked eye, making the surrounding site seem infinite.
