Field Apart

2015
Glass mirror, aluminium composite panel, aluminium frame, steel rods

Immerse yourself in the surreal and intriguing as you wander through a large maze of mirrors reflecting constantly changing scenes of Waiheke Island. Field Apart, a mesmerising artwork that brings the surreal into a natural environment in a unique and approachable way, is the second work in a series titled FIELD X.

Spanning an area of 15m x 15m, Field Apart contains 36 mirror columns with 144 mirrors which create an ever-changing experience for the audience and passers-by. The environment and the public are the key elements that make up the composition of the installation, and can create ever-changing scenes, where no two experiences are the same.
