Melbourne Mirror Displacements

mirrorexperiments1-18

Experimenting with a mirror.  This was done principally in response to Robert Smithton’s Yucatan Mirror Displacements, but it is not an exact recreation.  The location of the southern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia,  lacks the close relevance that Smithson felt for the Maya culture; one of the many middle and south american historical cultures that venerated the mirror, often created from polished obsidian.  This is  just a bathroom mirror tile, easily transported and able to connect sky to earth, sea to land. Most importantly it became a simple device allowing me to turn my back on the most scenic view and reflect it back into a new position or locale.
