week 39 LiveLive By Munyaradzi Mazarire

You are looking into a mirror; the reflection you see is what you are at that particular juncture in time, the space around you is peripheral and your focus is on the

mirror before you. What space exists in the reflection? Is there an alternate existence or a mildly parallel dimension where the inverse occurs out of line with the here and/ or now? Is there a here and/ or now?
Mazarire’s work was part of the 2009 show Live n’ Direct and the creation of this piece focused on an infinitesimal now, whenever the viewer viewed the artwork; which changed form upon gazing into it, the clock at the corner completes the frame of that scalar “now”, a selfie before the selfie culture overtook society.
