Linguistically speaking, the term ‘to reflect upon something’ stems from the metaphorical act of looking at oneself and contemplating a certain situation. The objects in the AYNA series don’t create the usual distinct mirrored images and are therefore not typical mirrors. Their reflective surfaces distort or multiply the things in front of them. In this day and age it has become essential to consciously broaden one’s perspective – to no longer regard a situation from only one point of view. The distinct image of merely one perspective does not exist. At a certain distance the mirrors visually transform into independent objects.
The chromed sheet is covered with a knitted stainless steel fabric. The reflected object receives a poetic impression through the abstracted reflection.
The polished chrome brass plate multiplies the viewer or an object placed in front of it. The image changes, depending on the distance.
