All the work that I have made with mirror started in 2005 with a simple design solution for a screen next to a window. That the screen should either reflect light or transmit light was a starting point. It coincided with television work on a baroque interior that required antiqued mirrors, so at the time I was experimenting with chemicals to remove the silvering. Searching for design ideas I began to notice that plant shadows indoors had the natural abstract quality that I was looking for- and they also worked very well in the space. I tried the two together and made the first of what became an ongoing project.
