The listening dimension (orbit 1) creates an immense reflected space that expands the size of the room and absorbs the viewer into the work. The work consists of a large brass ring that appears to hover in space. Upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that this illusion is created by mounting a semicircular tube to a mirror. The reflection visually completes the circular form, producing a virtual ring that appears to traverse the boundary between the actual space and the reflected space. This doubled world, seemingly united by the illusion of the floating ring, generates a subtly destabilising and uncanny effect.
