Your fading self (west), 2013
looking at, looking through
you only see things when you move
The large work, made from glass and held upright by a simple concrete fixture, is partly see-through, partly coated with a subtle dark fade, obscuring the view into the gallery space. Inside the gallery, the visitor finds the fade on the other side of the glass not black, but mirrored. The reflection gradually fades to one side, caused by the screen-printed mirror-coating, whose dots are increasing / decreasing in density. The work temporarily destabilises conventions of seeing. It invites the viewer to move to the right and the left, to opt for a moving perspective, to see their own reflection gradually fade or emerge.
