joe doucet: fathom mirror for victims of hurricane sandy

‘fathom mirror’ by joe doucet edition of 1 24” x 24” silver and blue mirror

 

 

commissioned by jean lin and jennifer krichels in an initiative to create a unique object to auction to relief the victims of sandy, new york-based desinger joe doucet’s thoughts turned to how quickly one forgets about events of such devastation. ‘fathom’ was created as a beautiful reminder. when one passes in front of the object, the top part of your body is reflected in a natural way, but the bottom half of the mirror creates a deep refraction and convincingly makes you appear as if you are neck deep in water.

 

the auction benefits the brooklyn recovery fund, relieving to victims of hurricane sandy.
