3-Dimensional Mirror Mobile

3-Dimensional Mirror Mobile, composed of three double-sided mirrors, takes inspiration from Calder’s kinetic sculptures but adds an extra dimension. 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.
