As a metaphor, the mirror is an invisible membrane, the slash or the in between space that simultaneously joins together and pulls apart differences which cannot reduced to a homogenized whole. The idea of ” Mirroring”, may denote a reflective process, yet it does not simply represent what is us given as what is already objectified. As the site of imaging, how are Asians reflected in contemporary Canadian Society? It is this Metaphoric element that three local artists will grapple with and contemplate its meaning, as the eve of a new millennium approaches.
