Mirror-Cube-Landscape -- Vermont

Mirror-Cube-Landscape (MCL), a commissioned piece for the group show, “Human = Landscape”, is first and foremost an art installation matching the size of the state of Vermont. Two hundred and fifty five mirrored cubes, 8 feet on a side, will reflect back images of Vermont’s landscape to residents and visitors who view some or all of the collection. The surfaces of the cubes invite a powerful and complex visual experience where a mirrored virtual reality in the cube alternates with and informs a more robust physical reality outside the cube. This may lead the viewer to a new level of consciousness concerning the environment in the vicinity of a particular cube.

MCL also has the potential of being the ‘hardware’ in a statewide system for gathering specific information about Vermont. This ‘Cube-Web’ could serve, with its constant flow of cinematic images, to awaken the viewer to fresh ideas about the Vermont landscape. Within the Cube-Web feedback system, these locally grown ideas could influence the impact of energy strategies on the visual topography, and perhaps help shape the future physical and social environment of Vermont.
