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.
