Solenne Morigeaud’s recent project, Smoke and Mirrors is a collection of mirrors, glass, and wallcoverings that blur and interact with perception. She investigates a potential relationship between magic and home design.
The main piece of her project is called “Mystical door,” in which she glazed an antique door from the 19th century with etched mirrors, creating an illusive effect. She is inspired by ink stains, clouds, shadows and smoke trails — coincidental patterns that create an unforeseen imagery and encouraging people to use their imagination. She aims to create a relationship between us and our things, especially important in our disposable society where things mean very little.
