Mirrors (2016) is a loop video animation that refers to confusing or disorienting situations in which it is difficult to distinguish between truth and illusion or between competing versions of reality. Playing with spatial disorientation the piece refers to an indistinguishable spatial state – physical and mental – where the sense of reality is threatened. The piece addresses this state of entrapment and disorientation and the need to break out of it exploring how technology, social systems and personal relationships affect the way we see and understand the world.
