A mirrored pyramid mounted on a wall rotates slowly around its axis, throwing varying light reflections on the surrounding walls. With each respective position, the mirrored surfaces reflect sections of the ceiling, floor and the walls of the room. Thus a new, disjointed perception of space occurs, as if the reflected fragments of the surrounding surfaces and objects have recomposed the room. The abstract composition of line, colour and form is reminiscent of the view through a kaleidoscope. When viewed more closely, the viewer is reflected in only one mirror, while the other surfaces reflect people in the background or the feet of a person standing beside the viewer.
