LeuWebb Projects: Just a Reflection

LeuWebb Projects - Just a Reflection @ Huntclub
Monday Jan. 20th - Sun, Jan 26th, 2014

“Each thing (the glass surface of mirror, let us say) was infinite things, because I could clearly see it from every point in the cosmos. I saw the populous sea, saw dawn and dusk, saw the multitudes of the Americas, saw a silvery spider-web at the center of a black pyramid, saw a broken labyrinth (it was London), saw endless eyes, all very close, studying themselves in me, as though in a mirror, saw all the mirrors on the planet (and none of them reflecting me)…”
- from ‘The Aleph’, Jorge Luis Borges
Between the public outer realm and the private inner space, there exists a boundary.  ‘Just a Reflection’ occupies the in-between, expanding this liminal threshold.  Playing with existing window facades, a panoply of convex and concave mirrors, and an array of responsive lighting, the threshold becomes its own space of reflection, layering itself upon the outer and inner spaces beyond. 

This project is part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival
