The iconic façade of Covent Garden is home to a new work of art, Reflect London. 67 mirrors span 32,000 square feet and completely cover the entrance, sides and pillars of the Covent Garden marketplace. Designed by Sculptivate, Covent Garden and its visitors will be reflected in the mirrors for 8 months. So make sure to catch a glimpse of yourself as you walk by!

As I entered the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna in Rome I was unsure if I should continue. The main entrance was covered with broken mirrors. There were statues on the glass but no one was walking near this cracked floor. Was this a work on display? I searched around trying to find a wall didactic and initially couldn’t find one. So, cautiously I decided to walk over the glass. As I made my journey over the fractured mirrors I looked down, watching myself walk over the work of art. I became part of the work.
