Made from smoothly crafted steel and polished mirror glass, ‘Twice’ presents a dialogue between two related objects which both contain mirrors and are mirror images of each other. The forms are starkly simple – cleanly cut triangles and reflective squares – but their combination is more complex than the sum of the parts.
