Calling the Mirrorical: Deep Dives into the Deepest Depths
27 Jul – 11 Aug 2006
Present by Cryptozoologist G. Bridle
G. Bridle is a cryptozoologist; he investigates and studies the mirrorical, an entity which is ‘hidden' or possibly unattainable. He describes it as a demanding existence requiring perseverance and faith in the face of scepticism, but tirelessly he does not waver from this lifelong vocation. G. Bridle here documented this quest for the mirrorical, an aesthetic spirit, through the portrayal of potential habitats and sites of reference.
