Project Description

Hanging Mirrors

Mirror, various lengths, steel, wire, outdoor space.

Works developed from experiments in the studio-garden with mirrors over time.


This particular installation has proved satisfying to experience at many times of the day and year. When the sun is low, the reflected beams reach out almost the full width of the space like narrow searchlights across the grass. At noon, the beams circle directly beneath reminiscent of the marks on a sundial.


The work started out as shorter length version installed in two clusters of four sets of mirrors hung within a trellis ‘tunnel’ which interacted interestingly with the planting and horizontal slots at close quarters, and shone through to the garden beyond when the leaves had dropped in winter.
