Cabinets of cosmic wonder, Myrianthe G. Sozou

Site specific installation of Fresnel lenses.




A site specific installation of Fresnel lenses on the front windows of the British Library, Focal Length 300mm is a response to Myrianthe’s interest in the way optics have revolutionised human visual perception. She is particularly intrigued by the composition of optical instruments because they were primarily made by simple contraptions using mirrors and magnifying lenses. The Fresnel lenses create visual distortions, challenging our perception of reality.
