Re-interpretting the power and purpose of mirrors, Mirror Monolith embraces the tension between looking at and looking through. It invites visitors to see through themselves and into the other, highlighting the dialogical nature in which we come to understand our shared commonalities and offering experiential knowledge of what it's like to look through someone else's eyes, or be in someone else's shoes.
