Your eyes cannot rest … trapped in a cycle between looking into the mirror, then across to the wheel – back and forth, looking behind and then beyond.
The composition is such that there is little to hold the eye, most of the components are incomplete, there is a size incongruity between the mirror and the wheel. The only real colour is provided by the frame of the mirror but all you can see is a distorted building and part of a car …… nothing of note, so the eye moves on. At least this is the way I see it ……. How do you see it?
Details: This shot was taken in 2012 at Southbank Parklands, Brisbane. The area was still a construction zone. The building is the new offices for the ABC, Australia’s National Broadcaster.
