Stunning outdoor mirror installations show how connected we are to the environment

How connected we are to the nature

Mirror Installation by Shirin Abedinirad

Iranian artist Shirin Abedinirad inserts mirrors in unusual locations to examine how we interact with the natural world. From Italy to Australia to Iran, her innovative shows have proliferated all over the world in a variety of captivating forms, such as an open door wedged in the sand or reflected stepping stones forming a trail through the desert.

According to Abedinirad’s webpage, “for me, use of mirrors is crucial to creating a heaven.” In Persian culture, a key mystical idea is that mirrors give light. A staircase in Treviso, Italy, is covered in a geometric arrangement of mirrors that is part of her project Paradise on Earth. Its deft placing presents us with a variety of seemingly unrelated pictures, some of which alter how we perceive ourselves and others of which enlarge the sky and sun onto a grey concrete area.

Abedinirad tackles collaborative art with her moving tiered artwork called Babel Tower in contrast to her fixed mirror displays. Based on its surroundings, this shimmering installation is susceptible of numerous motions. The mirrored structure will move in accordance with the weather when placed in a naturalistic way as opposed to a city where it will respond to the crowd. By breaking the globe down into its component components and reassembling them into a new whole, “this participatory installation is presenting a transforming view of the world,” said Abedinirad.
