These objects were once liquid, now solidified: Poured from synthetic resin, their shiny black surfaces reminisce on one hand the pond in Greek mythology, in which Narcissus reflected himself and fell in love with his self-image so deeply that he was thus unable to detach from it. On the other hand, they remind of smartphone screens, who also lure their users into obsessive occupation with what’s on and behind its surfaces.
