Translucent is an interactive optical sculpture for 2 or more people at a time.
It reveals the world through sliced and staggered mirrors. These mirrors reflect in two directions, and show deformed images and repetitions of reflections. One can see not only their own fragmented reflections but also those of the person on the other side.
The mirror is a symbol that has many meanings. For a younger audience this piece is playful and funny. Whereas grownups are challenged to contemplate about a number of psychological questions. Do we see everything the same way? Can we believe everything we see?
Translucent / tranzˈluːs(ə)nt / allows light, but not detailed shapes, to pass through; semi- transparent.
Mirror / ˈmɪrə / is a surface, typically of glass coated with a metal amalgam, which reflects a clear image. It is regarded to be a thing that accurately represents something else.
