Photography
with lasers
and mirrors

These photographs were taken from inside of a 1 ft cubic box, lined with mirrors and lasers. The mirrors reflecting each other naturally created a unique world, a seemingly infinite, virtual space, shaped by the positioning of mirrors in relationship to light. By hiding the lighting equipment behind the mirrored surfaces, the mirrors are transformed into empty voids, and the contours of light become solidified structures. The landscape becomes read as a quasi-architectural space shaped by light on the infinity grid.

The characteristic of endlessness becomes detrimental for the structures, as the purely symmetrical world can not allow for growth beyond these set perimeters. The forms exist only momentarily as temporary spaces, collapsing shortly after being created. The cycle continues, and the space is transformed again into a new space, once the mirrors are re-positioned at new orientations.
