This seemingly deep hole is transportable!
We perceive what
we expect to see until our brain is confronted with conflicting
information. This sculpture creates such conflict as a result of the
interplay between the physics of light, reflection and inanimate
objects. Mirrors were used to create an optical illusion of a dark,
bottomless well. The brick wall perimeter was carefully constructed so
as to merge seamlessly into the mirrored reflection. The gripping hand
has been incorporated to represent a person hanging off the wall and
about to meet an unknown fate akin to the struggles and outcomes
encountered in one's lifetime.
Note that this Broken Well
sculpture is one of the finalists exhibits in Wynne Prize 2014.
Exhibition opened to public from July to September 2014.
