I am fascinated by kaleidoscopes and the infinite reflections that can be generated very simply by looking through a hexagonal or triangular tube.
Using mirrored card, then mirrored steel I fashioned my own kaleidoscopes to produce unusual effects. Whilst the multiple images immediately tell it is a kaleidoscope, it is not always so easy to see what objects are being reflected. I like to include strange objects, or perhaps everyday objects seen out of context, to produce bizarre images.
I like the possibilities for illusion and the idea that innately ambiguous signals from the eyes to the brain can be interpreted in several ways. So making images that confuse and make viewers work at understanding is key for me. And if they find them amusing that's good too.
