Two-Way Mirror Mobile, composed of four circular two-way mirrors, takes inspiration from Calder’s kinetic sculptures and Dan Graham’s two-way mirror pavilions. 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.
3-Dimensional Mirror Mobile, composed of three double-sided mirrors, takes inspiration from Calder’s kinetic sculptures but adds an extra dimension.
Explicitly quoting the “Mirrored Cubes” of minimalist artist Robert Morris, this artwork challenges the clear aesthetics of the four mirrored cubes placed in a gallery. Unlike Morris’ cubes, the “Broken Mirrored Cubes” stand densely packed, separated only by a narrow gap.
