Reflecting Object

A large mirrored ball rolls slowly through an empty gallery space, repeatedly changing its direction. Its polished surface reflects the surroundings in a distorted, convex perspective. Unsure whether the ball is moving in reaction to their presence, the viewers gaze at their own mirror images and the reflections of the surroundings. Despite the random movements of the ball, the viewers, wanting to simultaneously observe the reflections and avoid physical contact, are directed through the room by the ball.
