About the work:

Self / Reflection Mirrors in Hand Cast Solid Bronze and Stainless Steel by Corbet.

This piece was created in response to Modern Times’s exhibition re:coquo for Melbourne Design Week 2021. Expanding on the broader Design Week theme of ‘Design the world you want’, re:coquo participants were invited to examine existing work, material or unresolved ideas and revisit the broken, forgotten or discarded with the aim of creating something anew.

“Observers are able to examine themselves in both mirrors deciding which is preferable. In one, they are able to view themselves clearly, however it is uncomfortable and heavy to hold, while the other is light and easy to use, yet only the peripherals are visible. Self / reflection encourages the observer to reflect inward about what they prefer to see in themselves, and to determine the effort they would devote to examining themselves,” says Corbett-Smith.

About the Artist:

Ashley Corbett-Smith is a Sydney based industrial designer balancing the practical demands of industrial design with an intensely creative mindset and relishes any opportunity to push the boundaries of his output. For re:coquo Corbett-Smith picks up an idea discarded in 2019 due to COVID, inspired by self-perception theory.
