At first glance, the Event Horizon Mirror seems like an ordinary looking glass. Its left-hand knob illuminates an outer vanity ring, allowing one to view their reflection. Turning its right-hand knob, however, causes all reflectivity to vanish, revealing fiery undulations reminiscent of a massive black hole. Activating the piece results in a mesmerizing, consuming phenomenon that causes one’s identity and reflection to be lost and replaced by an endless abyss. This 3D-dimensional illuminated artwork is inspired by images captured only last year of black hole M87 by the Event Horizon Telescope. This “telescope”, which is a network of globally synchronized observatories, is exclusively working towards understanding all things associated with black holes. As we continue to unpack black holes to better understand the universe, perhaps we will learn a little more about our own essence.
