    About The Work

    Topos' series of table-top, self-standing sculptures, of smaller scale, using metal brackets and blind spot mirrors.

    Part of the series “Measure of Dispersion” – sculptures and installations that aim to amplify and manipulate the spectator’s field of vision through the use of blind spot mirrors and a modular metal structure. It uses ordinary materials that are combined in different ways to reconfigure the apprehension of one's surroundings and change one's sense of location. Rather than capturing a specific moment like a camera, the mirrors reflect a fragmented body seen from uncontrollable angles and different points in space simultaneously. The resulting viewer experience is a challenge to the impulse to project preconceived assumptions about what we see: we are made to test our sense of familiarity with our surroundings and, more importantly, with ourselves.
