Joanes Simon-Perret: Miroir

Temporary installation, 2015

Miroir is a temporary installation on the Pyrenees Mountains. Fifty mirrors are arranged on the flanks of a mountain, and they reflect the sun to the same point on a trail. When going on this trail at the precise time of converging mirrors, one can see the opposite mountain so glittered that it becomes dazzling. The installation only works for a few days a year, because of the angle of the sun changing, and the mirrors being unable to converge anymore.

Miroir was realised at Centre d'Art i Nature CAN in 2015 and presented at the SAÓ Festival.
