Vanity Mirror visually realises the concept of the fragmented psyche within a digitally led, postmodern society.
The viewer as a participant has been an overarching theme throughout Harris’ body of work. With Vanity Mirror the viewer is finally confronted and dominates the artwork through the reproduction of their image across the digital surface. Titled after the mirrors that commonly adorn dressing stands the name references the act of viewing the self but also directly references the themes at work in this interactive piece.
As the viewer looks around they are always looking directly at themselves. The glowing screens catch the eye, the natural human engrossment with a reflection all combine to snare a viewer and fulfil the forced vanity of the artworks title.
