Composed of humble materials, the dramatic vista is in fact as fragile as the surface of water in which it is viewed. Once vivid and defined, the mirage is lost as soon as the surface of the water is disturbed.
Originally created for the Design Miami Art Fair, the piece was installed permanently within the subterranean cellars at Maison Belle Epoque in Epernay, France. Several days after any rain fall above ground, water drips through into the cellar, having slowly permeated down through the chalk ground. In this way the installation exists in its’ own dimension of time, rhythm and flux.
