Dopplekopf, detail, 2013
(acrylic on wood, altered found objects, double-sided mirror, vitrines) Commissioned by Sheridan College, Trafalgar Campus, Oakville, Ontario.
Dopplekopf, which is German for "double headed", is a site specific installation that transforms a pair of vitrines into mirror images of each other. A group of objects are arranged, copied, reversed, and reflected in various shades of gray. The symmetrical arrangement of the objects in these two vitrines prompts viewers to assume that both vitrines are identical. Closer inspection reveals surprising differences as well as optical super-impositions that are unexpected and disorienting.
