Using a vertically slanted wall of giant mirrors propped against a massive horizontal print of a Victorian house, visitors are able to interact with the piece as their reflections move playfully above.

This highly participatory installation requires that people interact with it to make it come alive. The work inspires ideas around perception, how we see and what we see.
