Premiered at 150 Media Stream in Chicago as an off-site extension of David Wallace Haskins: POLARITY at Elmhurst Art Museum
Time Mirror II is an entirely live site-specific interactive video work that transforms 150 Media Stream into a 150’ digital mirror, reflecting the architecture and its visitors back onto itself, compressed and stretched in time.
Visitors are invited to contend with the singularity and plurality of the self, the internal perception and exterior reality of the self, and the present-self contending with the past and future-self.
The work offers an opportunity to slow down and see oneself moving through different layers of time from a third person point of view. Haskins says, “Seeing the self as “other” opens a doorway of understanding and compassion towards the self and the world at large."
