Narcissus…your eyes…like twin pools… 1991

This project was constructed for an invitation by Cranbrook Museum to make an installation. I was a bit annoyed with the museum by our negotiations and it  occurred to me that the enemy of the museum would be moisture, so I decided to work with something wet. The ceiling contained two round parabolic light wells, which would resemble pools if the world were upside down, though it might be said that, like Narcissus, the museum is the pool in which culture admires itself. I added color to the "pools" and created fake "water damage" with special effects.
