Spatial Refraction (2012)

Spatial Refraction

 Spatial Refraction is an installation piece that is structurally inspired by the fractal properties of muqarnas, a form of ornamented vaulting in Islamic architecture. The hand cut mirrors in the walls of each fractal structure creates visual distortion. The viewer becomes aware of their perception in relation to the installation through the reflections and refractions of space through the mirrors.  MATERIALS: Painted Foamcore, Monofilament, Hand-cut Mirrors
