Stillwater explores the facets of the mirror. Still bodies of water are presented as the primordial mirror, allowing water as a mode of reflection to speculate on the fluidity of form through a hydrofeminist lensThe mirror’s significance as a magic object, a portal of apparent depths, raises questions of authenticity and illusion, an exploration of the dual nature of the interior and external self. The moon is presented as night’s mirror, whose source of power is derived from the light of another celestial body.
