The listening dimension (orbit 1), 2017

destabilisation

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.
