Anamorphic Mirror | 2011




video | 01 |

The anamorphic mirror is an installation at the end of the stairway to the first floor of Deutsche Bank head-quater. It consists of a faceted mirror, resembling a crystal, and blue light projected onto the opposite wall. Visitors walking up the stairs at first see only the mirror, reflecting the blue light and the room around it. From this angle it looks chaotic, but as the visitors get closer, a concrete form gradually begins to take shape before their eyes, ultimately becoming the bank’s blue logo.

This installation places visitors in the center. It is only through their movements toward the mirror that the logo assumes its form. A new frame in a sequence appears with each step visitors take up the stairs, turning their motions into a kind of moving narration of the space until the changing images finally morph into a legible form.
