352 – Looking for the face

From mirror after mirror,
No vanity’s displayed:
I’m looking for the face I had
Before the world was made
. — W. B. Yeats

Peter Trevelyan’s Mimetic Brotherhood definitely looks sparking in the bright sunshine. The effect of looking up close to the sculptures is quite mysterious – you’re not only looking for the face, you’re looking for any part of yourself. The different angles that the mirrors are are on prevent you from seeing much more than a triangle reflecting your face or body or whatever, and then very little else. It’s easy to guess how the invisible man felt.

Michael Jackson started with the Man in the Mirror… when you look in the mirror – who – what do you see? Are you happy with what you see, or are you looking to see someone else… me, I’m with Yeats – I’m looking for the face I had before the world was made. Simpler, calmer, easier times.
