Another Ghost? -

"Mirror, Mirror"
digital collage by Mick Mather
While there's no official series for a number of ghost-like images I've been accumulating, this piece would certainly fit in if there was. For a look at the image that sparked the idea, have a peek here. Anyway, this minimalist work suggests something else to me. That said, I can hardly wait to see what the Finnish Sisters may have to say and usually in spite of my descriptive titles! :)

I'm not familiar with Ligon's work. I better look him up.

These ghost images really invoke some creative thinking.

Excellent.

They look at a different direction: The girl in the mirror and the real one.

Ok, it could be door too and two different people, but I wouldn't like to see it that way! Why? Because they're ghost (and notice the title "another ghost" - so there's only ONE ghost, the person is same!!!!) This is interesting :D too ufo for you? Hope not ;D

Ever my downfall is that thinking thing. :)

elegia:
LOL, you caught me! It really is two different people but there's room to see this as a mirror image, too. Well, not anymore! :D

Isn't it fun to have Finnish Sisters who are able to see everything in a different way, not about talking how weird and nuts that way sometimes is.

I must confess that I'm a little amazed at Helene who saw a whistle in that previous pic....must have something to do with her having been living in France for such a long time....

I see a ghost in the mirror every morning.

I adore each and every one of The Finnish Sisters for exactly that reason; well, for a few other reasons too. Now, what? A ghost in your mirror every morning? :O

I'm not sure but, apparently, it's got something to do with whistling and rattling chains! :D
