Abstract

This installation with mirrors investigates a traveler's experience of space as a place visited rather than a place fixed in time. A traveler's movement and the simultaneous movement of a landscape which is caught only in partial glimpses form a series of snapshots which are piled hurriedly into memory and recomposed in the recounting; in the sequencing of slides in commentary on return. There are spaces where an individual feels himself to be a spectator without paying great attention to the spectacle, as if the position of the spectator was the essence of the spectacle itself. The use of mirrors in this installation acts as a machine for contemplation. It incorporates the Viewer's Space with that which is viewed. This linkage, the reversal of the gaze achieved through contemplation, is universal to all mankind, and each position or positions so viewed acts as a point or place of unification. The installation with mirrors, stainless steel frame incorporating the random movement of plastic spheres measured 200cm x 70cm x 101cm.
