Ripo’s “Reflect On” Project: An Explanation





“Mirrors are more than just something to see yourself in.
As a child I always thought they were actually windows into another world, one that was so familiar yet completely opposite.

The Reflect On project speaks via these windows. They are visual messages to us from our other selves and a reflection of the world we inhabit.

The photos of these paintings are simply snapshots of paintings that are constantly moving and changing.

When you look into a mirror you are the only subject that it speaks to and about in that moment. When you move on it is no longer yours.

In the public space these mirrors are everyone’s and they are about everyone.
This project has been ongoing since 2006 and the mirrors have shown their faces (and yours) in Bucharest, Istanbul, Barcelona, NYC, and Mexico City.”
