Derek Paul Boyle, "Mirror Step"
|"Mirror Step" by Derek Paul Boyle|
This is such a simple concept but so powerful in its simplicity. It draws attention to the mundane process of walking on very ordinary steps.
Having the mirror on the tread clearly reflects the sky above but also the person walking over this tread, putting the viewer into the art. It also means the mirror is a surprise to someone ascending the steps, where the tread only becomes visible at a certain point. From the top of the steps it is already visible looking down - a surprise to be sure, but not one as sudden as discovering the mirror mid-ascent.
