This project was part of DDW 2020

It’s thought mans first conscious use of the mirror image utilised shallow vessels of water, Perlucio evokes this lost quality. Employing centuries old methods of working traditional materials to provide a visual experience, challenging our perception of our environment.

From a distance reflections appear distorted and mysteriously out of focus, refracted light creates the shimmer you find looking at rippled water. Persons moving through the frame do so with a serene fluidity and reality takes on an ethereal peculiarity.
