Tags in a Mirror   Nug in Berlin

Presenting two spray-painted lines (one painted with a cheap, one with an expensive can), following no recognizable patterns, the mirrors invited every viewer to play around, creating different impressions by changing angles and distances and combining lines on different mirrors virtually to an entire new image.

I know, it’s hard to comprehend this, so probably the photos I took during the opening ceremony can help you understand. Here you go:
