Claude’s Perspective

In making this pieceI refer to the use of black mirrors by 18th century artists of the Picturesque such as William Gilpin and Claude Lorrain, who used these mirrors as a tool to frame a view whilst evening out the tonal range therefore resting the artists eye.

I use perspective construction lines, another artist tool/technique to create a 3d form from 2d lines rather than their use to render a 3d view in 2d.

Each plane of the mirror reflects a different view, collaged together create a different/other place or Heterotopia, as described by Foucault.
