    “The main TV studio at Brighton Polytechnic was equipped with a chroma-key facility and I was interested to see what could be done with it apart from weather presenter type superimpositions. I felt that the bringing together of two spaces into a single image would be more effective the more similarities there were. I came up with a very simple idea of using the same mirror in the same orientation apparently reflecting both an interior and an exterior space in one seamless sequence” Mick Hartney, March 2008
