My role: Conception of the idea, researcher, light and set designer
Project description: The main objective of my thesis was to study the many ways in which the mirror was viewed upon, together with its impact throughout human history.
The mirror caused furor in the past centuries: it was part of wars, treatments, and psychologic theories amongst others. Nowadays, we seem to have forgotten the property for creating virtual & infinitive images without technology.
I made experiments with mirrors and light, and studied the possibilities for designing a space based in the optical illusions that both cause.
