Michel de Broin - “Superficial”
If you’re ever strolling around deep in the forest of Alsace in France, you may come across a large reflective stone that looks like it could be something left behind by an alien visitor. In reality, it is actually Canadian artist Michel de Broin’s installation entitled “Superficial,” which was created in 2004 when he was invited to participate in an exhibit that explored the idea of transparency. After seeing a large rock in the middle of the woods, he chose to cover it with mirror fragments using glue and cement. The mirror treatment camouflaged the rock as it reflected the forest surrounding it.
