The terraced irrigation of hillsides has always fascinated me. It is a moment in which human intervention meets natural topography in a harmonious, poetic way. Inspired by these moments, as well as by the travertine terraces of places like Yellowstone, US, and Pamukkale, Turkey, the mirror drips down the wall, projecting a topography onto its planar surface. As with any topography, the nature of the mirror changes as we navigate around it, and gaze into it from different perspectives. Straight on, our reflection is whole – but as we move across it we see the brass edging begin to defy its own materiality, and we see ourselves fragment, splinter into pieces, and scatter across the room. We no longer see ourselves, only pieces of ourselves dispersed across time and space.

About J McDonald Visit Showroom →

J McDonald is an artist and designer based in Brooklyn, NY. He began his furniture practice in 2018, bringing together backgrounds in sculpture and high-end fabrication to create other worldly works whose conceptual and formal underpinnings are executed through a deep understanding of material and process. Inspired by the tensions, contrasts, dissonances and harmonies between humans and nature, his work brings the dominiant rectilinearity and clean minimalism of human rationalism against the chaotic, organic, and intuitive forces of nature that lie, often dormant, deep within us.. Working in the space between art and architecture, between sculpture and furniture, his work incorporates ideas around nature, space, tactility, intuition, and the human condition to inspire unique constructions that examine and redefine our perception and experience of the world, ourselves, and the relationship between the two.
