Metafoil

Oslo Opera House Bjorvika

the work is a permanent installation

 

“Metafoil takes advantage of the captive gaze of the audience, introducing a foil, a false reflection, an illusion of depth, a novel typography that disrupts expectation and challenges perception. My work has attempted to subvert the viewer’s expected relationship to an everyday object, nudging them off balance, encouraging a deeper look. My goal is to cause viewers to stop and consider the bits and pieces of our lives that are most often overlooked, perhaps suggesting a more comprehensive reconsideration of the world around us, even to ask ourselves: ‘What is important to us?’ ‘What are we seeing?’ ‘What are we not seeing?’” – pae white
