Exhibiting Artists: Bohyun Yoon
Mixed media, spotlights, screen
(Each mirror 127 x 56 cm)
Two mirrors that have slight textures
(male & female nude pictures)
on the surface reflect a spotlight onto
a translucent screen between them.
The two refractions from each mirror merge at
this screen if no one obstructs the light source. (Image 1)
However, if a viewer stands and blocks the light from
one side of the mirror, the image will project only
a male on the screen; and if the viewer switches to
the opposite place, then it will project only a
female on the other side of the screen.
This work is an interaction with the viewer’s
movement in the space; a person will engage in
both looking at his reflection on the mirror
and his projected image on the screen.
