suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Francis BITONTI: Francis Bitonti Studio produced the Schistose Mirror for the Intersections Symposium at the New York City College of Technology in June 2012. The different geometric organizations carved into the relief to produce a landscape of perceptual effects. The Mirror is CNC cut from high-density urethane foam and finished with a black automotive finish and can be produced in about two weeks time. The automotive finish produces a variety of effects across the surface. The reflective surface allows the onlookers to project themselves into the ephemeral landscape. The viewer becomes the project, integrating perception and form.
