I completed this piece today that I have been working on for a while. Titled after the John Fowles novel of the same name there is a viewing space in the centre of the piece through which “collections” of insects can be seen reflected and illuminated in the mirrored base. The viewer is forced to confront their own reflection as part of the piece.
