Kaleidoscope

: the Ancient Greek Kalos, “beautiful, beauty”, eidos, “that which is seen: form, shape” and skope ō, “to look to. to examine”, hence “observation of beautiful forms.”

I built the installation “kaleidoscope” that generates arbitrary and symmetric patterns composed by multiple fragmented reflections of the viewer’s body. I used my “kaleidoscope” to create a camouflage through the mirror device of patterning, using these mirrored patterns to blend the self into infinity as an object. Thus, I transformed the subject in a set of triangular mirrors, shifting her –consciousness and orientation. This device was designed to be in motion, without a fixed point of view. In my “kaleidoscope”, the subject/viewer is reflected in the background mirror and the subject experiences the loss of subjective individuality into the endless reflections of self as an object.
