Abstract

In this work Ralf Sander explores the impact of reflection on public sculpture. It breaks down the traditional divide between viewer and art object, putting the viewer literally into the work of art. He started to experiment with reflection and distortions to achieve the target of a vanishing image. Sander designed a sculpture that refers to Jonathan Swift`s Gullivers Travels. One moment you are a giant the other you become a dwarf or the world turns upside down. The sculpture that takes visitor on Gulliver`s Travels. Finally seeing the distorted images we can start to laugh about our reflections.
