Dopplekopf, 2013

(acrylic on wood, altered found objects, double-sided mirror, vitrines) Commissioned by Sheridan College, Trafalgar Campus, Oakville, Ontario.

Two sets of of replicas (one set in full colour and the other in gray scale) are displayed alongside altered found objects and arranged in mirror image of one another, on either side of a double sided mirror.

excerpt from press release:

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.
