Clear Cut: A Mirrored Forest Installation

September 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This summer artists Joakim Kaminsky and Maria Poll went deep inside the forests of Medelpad in northern Sweden to create this uncanny installation entitled Clear Cut using a mirror-coated fabric.

However eternal it may seem this is not a natural forest. Like 90% of the forests in Sweden it is used for forestry consequently being continuously grown and chopped down in a 60 years life cycle.

Joakim and Maria wanted to connect these trees to time. They wanted the installation to visualize a memory of earlier generations of pine trees that had stood here and forecast the clear cut that will soon replace them. Perhaps the mirrors could absorb the light, colors and smells of this place and save them for the future?

It really looks almost as if forest has been severed in half, the treetops hovering above the bottoms. See more of the installation here.

I found this on a new blog called Toildrops, which from glancing at just the home page could be a new favorite.

This mirrored Rubik’s cube is a new piece by artist Egil Paulsen out of Oslo, Norway. I have a feeling this would actually be pretty mesmerizing to fiddle with.

China in a Mirror

I’m loving the symmetry created in these mirror photographs of urban China by Austrian designer and photographer Atelier Olschinsky. See the entire series here, and his recently published illustrations entitled Game Zone are pretty mind-blowing as well.
