While working on the objects, having overprinted transparent grey surfaces onto the mirrors, I got an effect of a reflected and diffused light. I used this impression on the curved forms in order for the reflection to follow the movement of the viewer. Depending on the overprint, I received different intensity levels of either reflection or absorbing of light. In some of the works I overprinted a subtle soft spot of red, smaller in diameter than the shape of the image. The red can only be noted in a particular exposition light or under a certain angle of viewing. This element adds an extra value and impression. During my work, I came up with a phrase ‘independent object’ –that is an object that does not define its literal meaning, but allows it to exists freely and independently from the surroundings. My goal was for the viewer to participate in the creation of the visual effect, i.e. in the space of my work.
I divided the cycle into three types of work.
– synthetic, made of uniform gray prints on the entire surface of the mirror, with varying intensity and grayscale structure.
– with a hologram effect, irregular drawing with different saturation of gray and shapes printed directly on the curved mirror. This drawing, depending on the size of the graphic elements, was mixed with the distorted, reflected image of the surroundings.
– works of an organic nature, where the print imitates the movement of shapes, resembling a living organism.
