mirror installation by studio sifr reinvents urban perception in noci, italy


round mirror installation reflects picturesque surroundings in italy

 

studio sifr introduces ‘uranotopia’, a circular reflective installation located in one of the panoramic points of the historic center of noci, in italy. the piece invites passers-by to interact with it, observe the mirrored picturesque surroundings, and the mesmerizing views over the itria valley. seeking to reinvent the ordinary perception of the city, the public art installation expands the possible relationships between individuals and the public space.

providing an alternate backdrop for a new public life

 

the sculpture is composed of a circular mirroring surface that’s divided in half, thus reflecting, transforming, and altering the urban space. the intention of studio sifr (find more here) is to interrupt the material continuity of the historic center, configuring a new glimpse free from behavioral codes and open to new uses and practices. the citizens can recognize themselves in a scenario transformed by reflection, far from the common imagination, where they can experiment freely. uranotopia is a stretch of the city in which the changing colors of the sky and clouds will provide a backdrop for a new public life.
