Reflection, originally uploaded by squiddity of toronto.

This is an installation piece called Reflection, the current exhibition at off the map gallery. If you look closely you can see artist Clarissa Lewis & curator Antonia Lancaster reflected in the mirrors. It's a striking piece; you walk into the tiny gallery to find the walls painted black and a cluster of white tree branches taking up most of the space. It's about "thinking," and the branches reminded me of dendrites, or neural networks, but with the mirrors on the ground, also of the way trees have as many roots below ground as branches above; or maybe the tree and its reflection are the two halves of the brain...Go look, if you get a chance, and decide for yourself.
