Exercise 62 – Monday 4th of December “Mirror Work”

“Mirror Work

A performance art exercise that can be made by oneself or in groups:

Take a hand mirror

Hold it up and use it to reflect the world around you

Move it about and observe how your viewpoint is altered via the mirrors´ reflection

Begin to move, only viewing the world in the mirrors surface

Experiment with durations and environments, by yourself or in crowded situations where you can catch other peoples glances.
