Flynn Talbot's "Contour Mirror" Forces You to Take a Look Within
Mirror, mirror on the wall.
Seoul’s D Museum is currently hosting a Spatial Illumination exhibit featuring nine different lighting instillations in nine rooms, one of which being the “Contour Mirror” by Flynn Talbot. More than just a reflective surface, he created the mirror to offer viewers an introspective look at themselves, aiming to “bridge the relationship between object and viewer and encourage self reflection.” The London-based artist mastered this by using a fingerprint design — symbolizing personal identity — for a lighting display that shifts ever so slowly as the mirror itself rotates. “The rotation changes the reflection you see of yourself so the work changes you and you change the work.”
The exhibit will only be open until May 8, but you can see it in action below.
