arch inversion Arch Inversion, 2006, places a mirror on the floor of a Greek Orthodox Cathedral, reflecting the ambulatory arches at ground level.  The work diffuses the function of arches by creating a contradiction within the architecture apparent in its inversion.  It functions to nullify the hierarchy by making it nonsensical by asking how its inversion functions.  The inversion deconstructs the illusion of hierarchy and monumentality of the architecture by placing its reflection in the liminal space near the subject's feet.
