Mounted on small metal feet, the horde of mirrors are clearly mechanical yet the demeanour of their movement gives a sense of abstracted, human-like behaviour making them appear oddly anthropomorphic.
Through simple pan and tilt gestures akin to turning one’s head, the mirrors convey individual characters but when a person approaches, they all turn to face the visitor in one inquisitive, synchronised gesture. Reflected in every mirror, the onlooker becomes the subject of their own gaze and that of the artwork.
