I have been creating leaded light panels and placing them outside in the rural and urban environment. This has included hedges, trees, dry stone walls and free standing sculptural panels.
The introduction of acrylic mirror sections create panels that can be both seen through and reflect back from both sides simultaneously, creates a visually dynamic, interactive, contradictory and disorienting experience.
This could be particularly relevant during these pandemic times where the audience can safely interact through the panels, seemingly stood together but maintaining social distancing.
I am experimenting with laser technology to create double sided mirror panels, utilising galvanised, stainless and mirror polished steel sheet.
This more rigid framework enables simple holes to be left in the structures to create a lighter and less wind vulnerable panel when sited outside.
The visual effect echoes early collage work that can be seen in my archive. COLLAGE/photo cut through.
