Mirror, Mirror…?, 2002

Mirrors are something we see and interact with every day whether we are conscious of it or not but we always find ourselves so obsessed over what we see on the surface staring back. What happens when they turn up in unexpected places, when they show something, you don’t expect to see? Most people tend not to look too deep below the surface, but underneath some of us do not know who we are, where we fit or why we feel the way we feel. We become so focused on trying to conform to a certain image of how we think we should be that we no longer feel at home within ourselves.
