“Mirrors should think longer before they reflect.”
― Jean Cocteau
Mirror, mirror, on the wall…
Let me not ask you any questions at all,
just tell me what you see,
and hopefully it won’t destroy me.
The mirror is our next object in our Objectivity challenge.
So many possibilities,
so many boundaries…
the greatest of which is none at all.
I like mirrors,
even if they aren’t always kind to me.
They’re a threshold into the imagination,
within them we enter Wonderland,
even if it is back to front,
and wants to trap us in there,
maybe even kill us…
adventures come at a price,
which we never stop negotiating.
This particular mirror,
is one I’ve used before in photographic experiments,
with varying degrees of why did I do that,
attached to the results.
Let’s see what happens this time around…
but don’t ask the mirror what it thinks,
unless you’re ready to be constructively deconstructed by its critique.
“If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished?”
