Using images from the artist’s own home to produce a kaleidoscope of moving image, colour and light, this immersive environment invites audiences to consider what it means to be ‘at home’ in the 21st Century.
Featuring dual projections with transparent and reflective media, this immersive installation contemplates the critical potentials of home as a site of identity and belonging. An evolving vista provoking dialogues around ideas of inside/outside, memory/imagination, and the increasingly technologised relation of home/work, Mirror Stage acts as a site and a sight where the familiar becomes strange.
