Work consists of metal ladders and round pool filled with used motor oil. Specific quality of the used liquid – petroleum product, opens up multiple levels of interpretation, as global vision of polluted environment and consumer society whose future uncertainly floats dependant on big businesses and available energy resources. Tensions and commotions are continued in the visual registry of the pools. Dark mirror focuses the tricks of perception, the illusionistic relations of object and image. With its density and disorienting shiny surface it takes away the feeling of depth. Simultaneous to capturing the flexible reflections of the surroundings, it also simulates the continuance of the object itself within the actually very shallow pool. The dynamics of dissolving positive into negative, present and absent space, constant redefining of two and three dimensions, activates the fourth one, the time dimension that reaches across the object/reality, towards the unreal irrational spaces.

The work was produced in 2008 for the group show Paso Doble, at the Multimedia Cultural Centre – MKC (organized by Croatian Association of Artists – HULU), Split, Croatia.
