Contrast exhibit at the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk Virginia today. This is my wife's image reflected in the piece entitled Brushed Steel Mirror. There are 721 steel discs each sanded to create a directional pattern on the surface. As you approach the art work a video camera captures your image, digitizes it, and then each disc is rotated to achieve the proper brightness to reproduce a likeness in the brushed steel. This is one of several "mirrors" in the exhibit that runs through July in the Frank Photography Galleries. As geek photographer and lover of modern art, this exhibit pushed all of my buttons. Canon G11, 1/160 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 1600.
