I tried to think existence against environment from the point of mirror itself’s expression, but not to think where to place this “object in the frame which reflects surroundings.” Special film is applied to the surface of this full-length mirror, which reflects a clear image at its center, when looked at directly. Functional in essence, the piece also maintains the aura of a sculpture, softly shining when seen from an oblique angle. The frame is finished with subtly embossed paper, revealing itself on close inspection. Depending on the beholder’s viewing angle and distance, the mirror’s appearance transforms – sometimes a strong presence is felt while, occasionally, this unique object seems to disappear. . Acquiring existence of itself, I feel the mirror became something that blends into interior.
