About self/self

In the intricate tapestry of existence, where the self navigates through countless dimensions often obscured by societal norms, "Self/Self" emerges as a profound meditation on the dynamic nature of identity.

This art object serves as a mirror, transcending the mere reflection of physical form to delve into the depths of profound transformation. Much like the self, these mirrors are in constant flux, embodying the fluidity of existence itself.

In 2024, we find ourselves more reliant than ever on the lens of social media to define both ourselves and others. "Self/Self" invites contemplation of the subtle shifts within by observing the self. Each glance reveals not a static image, but a reflection of evolving identities, a testament to the perpetual metamorphosis of the human experience. With its spherical reflections revealing the surrounding environment, it suggests that we are part of a greater whole, and our immediate surroundings significantly influence all perceptions; be it of self, of the world, or of how the world perceives us.

Inspired by the timeless allure of convex mirrors, once emblematic of 19th-century middle-class homes and immortalized in the iconic Arnolfini Portrait, this object transcends mere reflection. It serves as a gateway to introspection, where observers navigate the intricate interplay of perception and reality, discovering anew the layers of selfhood with each passing moment.
