a flexible space by means of a wall of venetian blinds made of mirrors that slowly turn and modify the perspective…

things don’t have to be made out of rubber to create the illusion of flexibility. the mirror-blind installation makes
a flexible space just by adding one wall of mirror blinds. while the mirrors are slowly revolving the space in front
mixes, twists and warps with the space behind the viewer.‘ BP
