Trash Mirror

2013 ArtPrize Entry

The Trash Mirror physically builds a picture plane from irregularly shaped objects that have been discarded. Originally created in 2001, the Trash Mirror breaks traditional boundaries of sculpture and video. Carrying its conversation about technology toward the human condition, the piece examines our ideas of chaos and order, as well as perception – in particular, our ability to make sense of pixilated grids, even when they are broken. Composed of 500 units in the picture plane, Trash Mirror, No. 3 is part of a series and was specially commissioned for debut at Volta NY 2011. Previous iterations of the series have been exhibited internationally at venues including the Reina Sofia, Spain; the Taiwan National Museum; and Art Rock, France.
