The Daughter of Man

The Daughter of Man reimagines René Magritte's "The Son of Man," giving it a digital age makeover. In place of the classic apple, a mirror reveals a sky with drifting clouds, while a cloud-like frame you can reach out and touch completes the scene. This piece goes beyond a simple picture; it's a video sculpture where the mirrored clouds shift, playing a clever game of hide-and-seek with the viewer's eye. Just as Magritte said about his self-portrait, this piece is about the hidden mysteries behind what we see. The moving clouds on the screen invite us to look closer, to discover what's beneath the surface, reminding us that there's always more than meets the eye. The artwork, with its digital display and physical cloud frame, brings the idea to life that every image hides something else, sparking our curiosity to uncover the unseen.
