Above are laser engravings of The Waiting Room that I made using the Forge maker space in Greensboro, NC, during my residency at Elsewhere Museum. I made four engravings into the backs of mirrors, so that the laser took off the mirrored backing and made white/transparent negative space. The positive space is mirrored, and when they are stacked (as they are in these photos) the layer behind illuminates and shows through the upper layer in a ghostly way. The wood panel engravings are smaller, smell great, and are nicely textured from the deep dithering. The mirrors are on display at Elsewhere Museum in North Carolina.
