In Spring 2018 we completed creation of and started touring the a/v performance The Mirror, which in Autumn 2018 was accompanied by the release of an OST of the same name. Now it’s time to start publishing three artist commissions we have made in relation to this. The first work is an a/v piece by Dina Kelberman. The title is “Reflects”.
Click on the Media Link to view the work and please enable pop-ups and turn your device sound on since they form an essential part of the piece.
The other two artists (Porest & Hearty White) new works will be revealed in the coming weeks.
Description: When I thought about the word “reflections” this is what my brain showed me. Something about reflects, reflex, reflection symmetry, shapes, walls, and now that i think about it it’s probably a lot to do with sitting in a tiny room full of corners all day every day. Also laptop symmetry. These might all just be portraits of my laptop.
