The idea that we live in the age of the image has been so thoroughly drilled into us that all discourse now defines our era in these terms. Paradoxically, it has never been more difficult for each of us to read, analyse, and interpret them. The speed at which images are broadcast seems to be inversely proportional to our capacity to under and them in all their complexity. The one object that has been inextricably linked to the idea of image across all ages and art forms, from art to literature, new media to design, is the mirror. This exhibition takes the form of a series of chapters and aims to bridge the microscopic gap separating our image from our being.
