      Opening for Mirror Mirror

      Mirror Mirror is a temporary art installation that responds to sound with illuminated color. Visitors can talk, sing, and play with the work and be bathed in rainbow-hued light. The artwork does not make noise. It responds to sound with light, allowing visitors to interact with the artwork and affect its appearance using their voices and bodies. (Click here to see and hear a working model.)

      Created by SOFTlab, a New York-based design studio led by artist and architect Michael Szivos, and inspired by Jones Point Lighthouse’s historic Fresnel lens. When illuminated, the panels remain mirrored, creating an infinite, colorful reflection that Szivos compares to “a forest of light.”

      The installation is an open circle, 25 feet in diameter and approximately 8 feet high. Visitors are encouraged to walk, dance, play, and sing inside and around it.

      This project is the inaugural work for the Office of the Arts’ Site/See: New Views in Old Town public art series, an annual presentation of temporary installations that showcase Alexandria’s Public Art Program through innovative, exciting, high-quality contemporary art at this key riverfront location. Stay tuned for news about the 2020 artist. For more information, visit alexandriava.gov/publicart.
