Description

This work followed Sky Line as a subtle variation continuing the enquiries of the earlier work. A public work which encouraged passersby to observe the place in front of The Royal Library in Copenhagen, through a 100 meter long line of black mirror which was mounted along the waterfront of Søren Kierkegaards Plads. The mirror sheets were mounted with a slight angle so as to accentuate the reflection of the sky, especially when viewed from a distance. Due to the blackness of the mirror the reflection is subtle from distance, while its visual presence is accentuated. As weather and light conditions shifted, the reflecting line emphasized the ever-changing surrounding environment and its inextricable relationship to time.
