The outside frame will be hand sculpted out of
concrete and studded with 100-Watt Vanity Globe
Light Bulbs. The inside mirror will be made out of
dark polished casting resin (which should look like
a slice of black mineral rock). The frame and mirror
should stand on a dark wood pedestal.
The Vanity Mirror can be a functional object as well
as a commentary on the function of similar personal
devices that are ubiquitous in contemporary society.
Looking into the mirror, one can contemplate the
value of time spent on social media, whilst looking
into a familiar black glass object. The Vanity Mirror
offers an intimate experience, yet it does not only
illuminate and reflect the facial features of its owner,
it can help him/her shed a light on the nature of
vanity and how it has warped society.
