Mirror, Monitor, Screen is an interactive installation that is predicated on infinite restructurings of location and identity. The mirror multiplies ‘reflections’ and disperses them. Micro-video cameras & an LCD monitor are hidden behind a two-way mirror. The mirror appears normal; the technology is invisible. The cameras record the mirror-gazer and a specular double is produced (behind the mirror, via the monitor). It is experienced/superimposed with the expected reflection. The cameras are also connected to the internet and live footage of the mirror-gazer is streamed ad infinitum elsewhere—in and outside of—the installation space. The fractal streams reflect the fallacy of fixed location and identity. A reminder that we are always becoming elsewhere and other. Forever finding and losing ourselves. Wasting and consuming ourselves. A loop.
