Mirror Ball (2009)


This oversized representation of a generic 1970’s disco ball is composed from over 300 smashed vehicle wing mirrors from a large selection of car brands. I became fascinated by their beauty which was the result of a violent accident. The fragmented broken surfaces transform into  jewel like artifacts glistening in the light. The Mirror Ball is an archive of accidents, turning a collection of aggressive acts into something of beauty. The huge ball rotates slowly and is illuminated by external spotlights which reflect perfectly the shattered mirror patterns onto the surrounding space.
