Two Way Mirror

I have been playing with two-way mirror a lot in the studio – trying to explore the duality of reflection and transparency, and how its play with light creates a beguiling visual effect.

Inside a two-way mirror plexiglass box which I had made by Hamar Acrylic, is scrunched up two-way mirror foil, with a hollow opening in the middle and an LED light source.

This is an idea I had a while ago, but have only just now gotten around to trying out. Having played around with it for a few days in the studio, I haven’t felt I can resolve it to a workable form. Maybe if I leave it alone and come back to it later it will come alive again?
