This full length wall mirror is framed using the synthetic silk material recovered from decommissioned parachutes. Internally lined with LEDs, the piece can be experience with three colour ways, depending on the ambient and internal light combination.

The incorporation of the material with this charged past life is evocative, the reflected person or room framed with a proximity to thrill seeking or last resort, with the work made with a material that literally allowed someone falling through the skies to return to earth unscathed, arresting their fall from the heavens.
