Instant Reflection

2018

Instant reflection is a temporary mirror which can be applied on any clean glass surface. The transience of the mirror is due to the material, gallium, which has a melting point at 29,7°C. This metal is precious and can technically be recycled, reused, as long as it is kept clean and not alloyed with other materials. The fact that the mirror’s life time depends on the choice of location, weather conditions and treatment, highlights the perceived luxuriousness and the appreciation for the time it is there.
