Reflections.....and shadows.

I posted this literal reflection at the end/continuation of my collaboration with +John Rae. When I contemplate this image, the aspect that I like most is the blurring of the colours and words into a moving 'otherness'. In this collaboration, John was in his studio and I was in my digital studio and we passed the work backwards and forwards across the kilometers (2,572 as the car drives) in lightening, digital speed.

In reflection, I can now merge the work with my own experience and learn from that. When I say 'learn' it means that I don't have to repeat that exercise, I'm now prepared to move forward, try something else to build on that. Something new can emerge from that work, like the swirling waters. It also reminds me of a time when I swam in the section of the river that met the sea. Swirling fresh and salt water caused currents and temperatures to wrap my body. A totally different experience to swimming in either the river or the sea. Reflection can be a stick in the sand....saying that is that and then move on, or it can be the blending and merging of the experience into something new.

A mirror reflection (like Norman's image) attempts to accurately represent what is put before it. This is not the learning reflection I am thinking about. Just repeating the exact 'thing' that took place is maybe the first step of reflection. Then to add the 'so what' aspect. What did it mean to me? What has changed? What step can I take? These are the questions I ask myself in reflection. In the image Norman provided there is the alluring shadow that sits below the mirror. This shadow is a different shape and colour to the original sculpture but is clearly part of the picture. Perhaps this shadow is the 'perfect' reflection. Adding light, blurring lines, changing angles, another aspect is moved into the arena.
