2014. Mirrored Acrylic, Sandblasting, Silicon
Steps that lead to our beach front are dotted along the shoreline for access. Grey dull concrete performing only their function.
Insert mirror and suddenly the reflected ever changing sea views that the steps face give the concrete life, colour and movement. The reflected beach scene is out of context on the steps making the mundane a picture fame for its ever changing surrounding environment.
Interfering with the reflected beach scene are subtle sandblasted silhouettes of seagull positioned on the mirror so it looks like they are flying in the reflected sky. Questioning the viewer, which is the imagined reflection? This opens up a new dialogue of how we interact with the steps.
