Garden's Mirror (2013) - Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln - 2013 - installation (acrylic mirrors with wooden stand, 2.42x140cm)

The only organic vegetation in KHM campus' main courtyard where the students mostly gather and socialize is on the rooftop of one the buildings. This wild plantation is beautiful, invisible, and inaccessible. I installed two oval mirrors on the roof facing the inner courtyard, facing down, to reflect the 'garden' up for my fellow students. At he first encounter, the mirrors themselves are also almost hide and need to be recognized. The garden on the roof is a fast changing ecosystem and reflects a natural process, yet in my view, its (reflected) image remains an alien simulation in the school for media arts.
