Right at the minute I do not have a place I can call “home”, I stay in all sorts of places, always moving to somewhere new every day. Luckily, I have a lot of kind friends that let me stay on sofas or floors, sometimes beds. I love every minute of my time here but often I find this is not always practical. A dream of mine would be to settle somewhere in the area, not too close to the centre of Byron but somewhere close by, every visit I have paid there has been magical, what an incredible place to call home. Nowhere remotely like it in the whole the world.
Artwork Description
The work is concerned with creating and exploring space and how that space can then be altered and affected. it is grounded in mathematics, influenced by the mathematical models by Arthur Moritz Schoenflies. The piece plays around with our perception and creates optical illusions within double and triple reflections. Fragmentation of the infinity mirror. It reflects people and the environment around them. Open - This piece welcomes anyone and everyone to interact. Fostering creativity through inspiring photography. Honest – a mirror cannot lie, a true reflection of its surroundings but still able to bend the truth and make us look at things in a completely different way. Respectful to its environment, leaving nothing but reflections. Though this is not specifically a site-specific artwork, it does react differently installed within certain environments. Always complimentary to the natural beauty of its surroundings, blending in with harmony. I think it would react really well within the space, a gentle, formal structure that is decorated by the natural beauty of the environment.
