Baroque Baroque #2
We are still at the "Baroque Baroque" exhibition by Olafur Eliasson. In this photo you can see "Wishes versus wonders": half of a circular brass ring, five meters in diameter, hovers over the parquet floor with its open side touching a mirrored partition that intersects the rooms of the Winter Palace. The reflection visually completes the circular form, producing a virtual ring that appears to pass from the actual space in the reflected space.
