Mirror Labyrinth NY

The accessible labyrinth is made of freestanding mirrored lamellae forming three curves that merge into one another. The heights of the lamellae vary creating an irregular form that refers to the skyline of Manhattan opposite to the park. The mirrored surfaces reflect not only the viewers and their surroundings, but also the adjacent mirrors. Physical space is visible in the gap between the vertical lamellae, and is inserted between the mirror images. The multifaceted reflection therefore produces a fragmented view of the space, surrounding the viewer with an unfamiliar and disorienting environment similar to that of a labyrinth. By echoing the skyline of Manhattan in its form and its reflection of the surroundings, including the skyscrapers on the opposite side of the shoreline, the Mirror Labyrinth New York builds a visual bridge between Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge Park offering an exceptional view of the city.
