Place of Round Mirrors by Harumi Yukutake
This house is a mystical secret visit the entirety of its own, made of thousands of hand-cut mirrors. Worked for a craftsmanship celebration in Japan, the house mirrors the nature that encompasses it. It has a dreamlike look – echoes upon echoes and a changing vibe relying upon the light. What’s more, in light of the fact that the reflection comes in such vast numbers of round shapes, fit together, it has right around a honeycomb feel. Harami Yukatake is a glass craftsman situated in Toyama, Japan who finished her Master of Fine Arts at the lofty Rhode Island School of Design in Providence. She calls this piece: “Rebuild”. From the outset, it’s difficult to tell where nature closes and the house starts. Furthermore, when the encompassing trees and grasses wave in the breeze, the house appears to wave close by them. Is it accurate to say that she is stating that we have to rebuild our association with nature? Or then again with ourselves? What do you see when you look in the mirror?
