Boxes - Mirrors, 1989

Medusa Art Gallery, Athens

Auto-portraits in wooden boxes with mirrors that become transparent at times, timer, lamp, paper.

Approx. 220 x 70 x 30cm

In these pieces the auto-portrait drawing, which is within the box, eludes the spectator, since, at times, it is being replaced by the spectator's own reflection on the surface of the mirror.

This happens simply because the mirror is photosensitive and alternates to transparent glass, due to a lamp and a timer inside the box, which periodically switch on and off.
