Interactive furniture is the new wave in art installations and this delicate piece does well to remind every woman of her childhood and every father of his daughter. As you step in front of the mirror, which one distant day was the upper part of a beautiful mother’s dresser, a video of young Qiqi appears. It is a representation of dreams, a pledge of innocence, and a hope for the future. The image is framed and adorned by the refined woodcuts of two peacocks. These delicate creatures help us remember the great hand that Mother Earth plays in all of her creations, be it a little girl or you, who is watching her. [Kristen Delaney]
