The Trash Mirror physically builds a picture plane from irregularly shaped objects that have been discarded. It breaks traditional boundaries of sculpture and video. Carrying its conversation about technology toward the human condition, the piece examines our ideas of chaos and order, as well as perception – in particular, our ability to make sense of pixelated grids, even when they are broken. Composed of 500 units in the picture plane, Trash Mirror, No. 3 is part of a series and was specially commissioned for debut at the Volta Show, an invitational show of emerging solo artists, in New York City back in 2011. Previous iterations of the series have been exhibited internationally at venues including the Reina Sofia, Spain, the Taiwan National Museum, and Art Rock, France.
