Reflection


A space circled by mirror curtain is reflective autonomy, where viewer sees self in wholeness and in thousands of reflect glass "kaleidoscopes". 


Mirror curtain wraps and defines this space. Three curved walls embedded with thousands of "kaleidoscopes" deepens the wholeness space and distributes the image of object-viewer. 


Standing in between mirror curtain and curved walls . "I" glimpse at mirror. "I" see "myself" in wholeness, and "I" also see thousands of pieces of "myself" scatter into "kaleidoscopes". 


The same person can be different from different perspectives. It's an opportunity to see truth: Those pieces are facts, but they are all just part of truth. 


The garden is reflective between viewer and object.

Fabric Proposal 1: "Kaleidoscope" on concrete walls are eyes of both pavilion and garden. (Chosen for construction)

From one side, they are eyes of building; from the other side, they are eyes of garden to reflect the world between viewer and object. 

Fabric Proposal 2:

Convex and concave, by weaving bricks with shadow, weather and plant, track time story.
