next project ︎︎︎
You hold a small mirror to your nose, like a pair of glasses, while kissing someone. You look into your own eyes, but kiss someone else's lips.
Despite the world being connected through an intricate network of fiberglass, more than ever we seem to be alone together. ‘Kiss Me’ brings these two opposing forces - unbridled narcissim on the one hand and a deep longing for connection on the other -together in one object through
reinvention of an age-old instrument: the mirror.
Kiss Me is a continuation of a series of viewing instruments that Spincemaille has been developing since 2009. They deal with perception, image/reality, the digital realm, narcissism and media.
