Reflect, 2009 - 2017, an interactive sculpture with hand made mirrored buttons, digital photography (2013) Moscow Biennial, Moscow, Russia (shown here) as a migrating sculptural performance — Moscow, St Petersburg, New York City, Key West.
An interactive sculpture/walk. Two performers walk traversing urban settings until their wearable sculptures are diminished by giving away the mirrored buttons (one at a time) to the public in trade for each individuals’ photograph. Each garment begins by being entirely covered with thousands of mirrored buttons (like campaign buttons). Each button is 1” in diameter, handmade, with silver reflective mylar. The buttons reflect the environment as the performers walk.
After the walk, the thousands of digital photos collected by the performers are made into black and white “portrait” buttons, and are attached to the garment sculptures -- replacing the open areas on the garments where the mirrored buttons once were. Then, the walk is performed again with the transformed sculpture garments covered in thousands of black and white portraits of all those who interacted with the work, reassembling the community onto the wearable sculpture.
