One of the adventures of working with mirror is that its properties can be used in so many different ways. A shadow puppet escapes from its support to hover in space. The light of a lamp, represented as it might be in a painting, puts one form of illusion in the context of another, and images, half seen through the silvering, appear to be receding, or emerging, Alice-like, from another dimension. Skulls, planets and butterflies can defy physics- or not- to float in mid air.
