Venetian Mirror

A photograph which is permanently in development.

1 dicembre 2009

Venetian Mirror is a large scale interactive installation blending contemporary digital technology with traditional Venetian glass. When the visitor walks up to the installation, their image doesn’t immediately appear in the mirror. Only if they keep very still, will the reflection slowly appear, like a photograph being developed.

The combination of high tech and traditional design invites the audience to reflect on the duality of new and old, and the mystery of time itself. It is an interactive piece which engages the sense of proprioceptivity - the sense of oneself and one’s body, in the here-and-now. The cut of the glass pieces resemble a broken mirror - an allusion to the fragility of time. Venetian Mirror is by Andy Cameron and Sam Baron with Oriol Ferrer Mesia, Goncalo Campos and Dave Towey. Venetian Mirror took part in numerous exhibitions, among them “Decode: Digital Design Sensations” at V&A Museum in London (2010).
