You Never Know How You Look Through Other People’s Eyes ICA MECA 2018
A system of mirrors compose builds a pattern of multiple lenses was installed inside the ICA's gallery. Fragments of the mirror force you to look back yourself getting disrupted. You can’t see the full picture when everything is broken into parts. Where is one implicated? The same pattern of mirrors is re-composed outdoors on a metal fence that surrounds a fallow, sweet grass garden that was planted the summer before in an empty lot. Each piece reflects light and color in a different direction depending on your point of view. The braided rug was installed on the floor and viewers could walk in a path around the rug to imitate the way the braid spirals out. Each piece encourages viewers to constantly reposition themselves and shift their position and engage with the piece through movement.
