An ice portrait

Some months ago I wrote a series of posts about the perception of the reality we have from our point of view.

My focus was concerned with how we are able to see only some simple and finite elements of the reality that it around us.

By changing even if only the medium by which we look at things we could discover how different they are.

What about our perception of ourselves? How can we see our images in a different manner?

We can see to us by using a mirror, but we know that the image in the mirror is at the very last flipped.

What is a mirror? Are we the person in the mirror?

This is my image reflected in an ice mirror: a sort of dark gray shadow in a blue and light violet universe (maybe it is only the sky reflected in the ice).

This is the reality of me in a bucketful of water left outside during a freezy day.


By changing the viewpoint the next is the same me viewed in reversed colors: now I am a light shadow in a mainly brown world. 



What about if I tried to escape (or to enter) in an iced world?...



... seen from a negative perspective!



All the images were taken by me with the smartphone camera. The second and the fourth images where software manipulated to invert colors.
