Hospitality - The mirror
Hospitality for the opposite world
Mirror, we were able to indirectly look our selves and surroundings through a mirror.
And mirrors have long been a necessity for our lives.
In the fairy tales and novels, stories we have been facing a lot of mysterious aspects of the mirror.
A mirror that can be easily seen in our lives, and the mystery of it. As a property of this kind of mirror, I created a mirror as an object. (I embodied the mirror through the imagination that there would be the same world like this one on the other side of the mirror)
When I stand in front of the mirror, the landscape surrounding me, including myself, is still visible.
Maybe it is the same in the opposite world. I want to give hospitality to the opposite world.
I want to broke the stereotypes that we thought were reflected through a mediator of a tray, and proceeded with imagination and inspiration to connect and communicate with the other world.
It was time to think about ways to highlight only the unique characteristics of mirrors.
Mirror, frame and one round tray.
Now we can get each other a glass of water for the other side of the world.
Thank you very much.
