Column _ Metal and Mirrors 6.2 x 1.5 x 1.5' New York, July 2015
The work “Column” is a self contained, self-referential sculpture, that through its seriality, and the different position of its mirrors, accelerates the spectator’s eyes and tries to imprison it as much as possible before finally ejecting it back to the ordinary stability of the surroundings.
The series “Measure of Dispersion” is comprised of sculptures and installations that aim to amplify and manipulate the spectator’s field of vision through the use of blind spot mirrors and a modular metal structure. It uses ordinary materials that are combined in different ways to reconfigure the apprehension of one's surroundings, and change one's own sense of location.
Rather than capturing a specific moment like a camera, the mirrors reflect a fragmented body seen from uncontrollable angles and different points in space simultaneously. The resulting viewer experience is a challenge to the impulse to project preconceived assumptions onto what we see: we are made to test our sense of familiarity with our surroundings and, more importantly, with ourselves.
