Located in The Loft
Your Present Mirror is a site-specific kinetic sculpture for the Elsewhere Loft Space inspired by our society's evolving concepts of time that conflict with an outdated notion of a universal "present". A warping, gold-mirrored surface expands and contracts to reflect the individual realities we each concurrently experience.
