Mirrors

Mirrors are very different. If you cover an object with mirrors, it becomes invisible, totally transparent seeming. But if you walk around it, it all of a sudden takes shape, it becomes real. So a mirror-covered object is at once immaterial and supernatural, especially if it is broken – then it becomes hypermaterial. I like the tension between totally transparent, non-existent and suddenly supermaterial, dangerous and sharp.
