P R O P E L L E R E D ⬡ M I R R O R E D is a site-specific, slowly-moving, audio-visual experience which tends to induce some of the above mentioned effects. The piece is meant to be freely and safely observed. However, it might also trigger a certain amount of unpleasant feelings such as claustrophobia or undue fear of being “captured” in such immersive and deeply captivating environment.
While some of these effects might be more present than others, none of them are guaranteed to occur.
