MIRROR UNKNOWN (8 x 30) by Ingrid Hulskamp

A collection of paper surfaced mirrors inspired by the guilty pleasure of tearing paper off. Read more...

In our busy life we tend to behave in automatic patterns. Doing things thoughtlessly with routine, such as preparing ourselves for the day. During the daily ritual of looking into the mirror Ingrid Hulskamp sees an opportunity to alter this unconscious behavior through a playful, sensory, and contemplative object

The collection consists of five mirrors that are partially covered with multi layered paper.
From a horizontal line in the middle of the paper, the user can begin to tear the paper randomly away. Layer by layer unique unexpected images resembling landscapes will come alive. In the process of making the paper material, 50 sheets of paper are carefully painted and glued by hand in the same motion resulting in distinctive, lively, and sensitive colors.

The product photos of the paper surfaced mirrors are torn to showcase possible outcomes. Please note that every mirror becomes unique by the individual choices of tearing away the layers of paper.
