Gates of Narcissus: Reflections
The Gates of Narcissus: Reflections series appear as shimmering, faceted pools set with sculpted narcissus flowers. Cast in metal, the flowers are preserved in an inorganic form that references the timeless eternity of our curated digital lives. The series is an homage to the Greek myth of Narcissus, a man who met his untimely end because he could not pull himself away from his own reflection in a lake. In our contemporary culture, our reflections are projected as our online persona. We are Narcissus in that we have become obsessed with curating our online image and seeking virtual validation from others.
