Alva Bernadine -I once bought six small mirrors in a £1 shop with no real idea of what I was going to do with them.
After a false start it occurrred to me to try to reflect nudes in them. Because they were so small that I could only reflect a small portion of the the model’s body in one. I decided to make this a virtue, getting the viewer to fill in the missing bits of the body. I then had to decide on the most strategic features of the body to use. It soon became clear that it should be the face, breasts, groin, knees and feet.
I started out using as many mirrors as I could until I worked my way down to one. On the way discovering I could put the mirrors in a different plane or order or further apart than expected or reflecting the image in a mirror with another mirror.
These were not my first experiments with mirrors. I had used them in unusual and unexpected ways before. I made the video to show some of the possibilities. [Official Website]
