Work from Geometric Mirrors I-III.
“Geometric Mirrors is a series of mirror angles, each consists of two mirrors connected to each other at angles of 90° to form a corner. Whereas the mirrors simply reflect the opposite space and the visitors when viewed from the side, an interesting optical phenomenon occurs when the installation is viewed from the front. The right angle causes a double reflection, as each of the two mirrors reflects not only the location but also the other mirror. The widths become extended, seeming to continue on the other side; hence, appearing to the viewer as a mirrored cross rather than a mirrored corner.
In addition, Geometric Mirrors I has a triangular opening on one side so that a full cube appears in the middle of the sculpture, Geometric Mirrors II has a semicircular opening on one side so that a full circle appears when seen from the front. Geometric Mirrors III in contrast consist of a mirrored rectangle and a rectangular triangle connected to each other so that an equal-sided triangle appears in the reflection.” – Jeppe Hein
