Corner Mirror, 2015
(Installed in Orlando, FL)
Steel, mirror, paint
24 x 65 x 48”
This public installation was a part of the Art in Odd Places festival held in downtown Orlando during September 17-20, 2015.
This installation places a large, brightly colored mirror at a sidewalk corner. The mirror functions similarly to traffic safety mirrors, but is fixed at eye level to allow nonverbal interaction (eye contact, hand gestures) between pedestrian walking in opposite directions from a distance. The playful color aims to soften the tension of eye contact between strangers, and connect them on a simple yet emotional level.
Art in Odd Places 2015: TONE is curated by Patrick Greene & Genevieve Bernard. Festival Producer, Timothy Turner. Produced by Downtown Orlando Arts District, Barbara Hartley, Executive Director. artinoddplaces.org/Orlando
