This piece is an experiment in self-creation, trying to create something that feels honest through mechanical means. An overhead projector bounces its light through a mirror and magnifying lens, striking a set of two mirrors set at a right angle – this splits the light beam in two. Each beam then separately passes through a transparent photograph of my mother on the right, and my father on the left. The beams are then bounced off yet another set of mirrors and rejoin on the wall above the triangle of light, forming a messy but discrete new creation – myself. The triangle of light is continued on the floor with powdered graphite, containing the entire soul-creating experiment in the illusion of esoteric safety.
