Building rooms that aren’t there


Or a good excuse to share the touch of redecorating I’ve done to the work so far.

Let’s see if I can explain more clearly what all this mirror stuff involves and I hope that these are more useful photos.

What we see through the doorway …

All in a mirror

All built and reflected from two angled mirrors

The other real wall of the corridor:

The view of both real and very short corridor bits that run across the room box and provide the reflected image of the corridor that isn’t there.

I hope that does make more sense?

I see, however that the badly set tiles are already lifting and all the edges look as though the dog/cat name your pet has licked them …

Onward to the doorway and the room at the front.  Possibly a change in floor covering.  Going to spend some time mocking up a terracotta style piece of flooring I think.
