Reflection of Self 21 - 22
An art installation produced by Moniker Culture
As we approach the end of the year and a new beginning in 2022, we take a moment to reflect on where we are, how we got here and where we aim to go. A new year brings the opportunity for new beginnings and with that, Trinity Leeds has partnered with Moniker Culture, a leading arts platform, to present an immersive artistic window display titled Reflection of Self | 21-22, the installation features an almost claustrophobic amount of giant inflatable chrome spheres, nestled on a harsh black sand environment and lit up with neon blue lights.
The installation at first glance might seem purely random, but it asks us to question and reflect on who we are and what we present to the world. The installation allowing us a moment to pause, and literally reflect as the chrome spheres bounce back the images that cross its path. The blue light representative of our digital age and the devices we hold so dearly, in this instance the installations ask to look up and look inward, rather than look down.
The installation, almost taking on a personality of its own, captures the viewer with a poem from F.Scott Fitzgerald, paired with writings of its own. Turn the corner and you are questioned to play a game with the installation, can you guess how many spheres there are in the space? Scan the QR code to play, a correct answer can win you a £500 gift card from Trinity Leeds, gifted by the installation it seems, “a gift of gratitude, a gift to take care of you.”
Reflection of Self will be on until January 31st, found on Albion street as part of Trinity Leeds.
The installation is produced and curated by Moniker Culture.
