Duane Michaels


Our displaced eye today features the series "The Magical Mirror of Heisenberg's Uncertainty" by Duane Michaels, where men and women stand in front of mirrors in a non-linear fashion to the point where the camera records the image, which allows people to see are before a mirror, but which can not be recognized, or which have their characteristics modified, deformed in their reflection. In the first figure one notices a girl who, placed before a mirror in a position inclined to the shutter of the machine, distorts its mirrored figure, showing a figure that repeats itself, which has to do with the other, but which is not the same thing . The conceptual implications are also numerous, to the bottom of the mirror is a door that is not known whether it is open or closed, but that reveals a world to unfold behind the reflected image.
