“To Reverse Yourself” is freestanding mirror that creates an interaction between two viewers. It is the embodiment of my quest to understand the relationship between the self and others. The mirrored panel, with its cut out made for a participant’s face to fill, reflects a hybrid image that combines the viewer’s body and the participant’s face. Inspired by "To Reverse One’s Eyes" by Giuseppe Penone’s mirror contact lens, I, too, want to reverse viewer’s perspectives but instead, my work speaks about illusional experience as a whole.
