Scratched Light

Context: An entryway is the first impression of a home and is usually the most neglected area. Creating a sculptural element that utilizes light and shadow will enhance atmosphere and welcome you into the space.

Problem: Expressing the concept of light and space through the integration of mirror as a re-usable material so rich in historical content. A material once widely viewed as luxurious and precious is now mass produced and taken for granted.

Solution: Etching away the silver-plated surface of the mirror will emphasize the optical qualities and refract light to create the desired effect.

Brand Strategy: A scratched or broken mirror would normally be discarded. My design embraces these qualities and reinterprets them into sculptural components.
