Cooled by eight Peltier cooler modules that sit behind a mirrored aluminum surface, Glimpse is constantly covered by condensate–liquid formed by condensation. To see beyond the small drops of water and to reveal a reflection, one must wipe the mirrored surface. When touching the mirror, the warmth from one’s fingers transfers to the cool aluminum surface and exposes–but only for a brief moment–a clear reflection. Using the human obsession with self-image as a trigger, Glimpse creates an infinite fleeting moment that expresses timelessness.
