MIRROR OF TIME
concept and design
by De Merbes Sprimont
Verona, 29 settembre – 2 ottobre 2021
Finely polished Belgium Black marble is used in this project to develop the mirror theme.
Four stone mirrors explore the concept of time by associating the ephemeral, reflected image of the observer with the eternity of reflecting stone. A temporal association is created between stone and people to evoke an intriguing reflection between the oldest natural material and the transience of man who uses it.
The designs of the four different mirrors have been created to minimise waste. They have been produced using two different machining operations, CNC milling and cutting.
