Nina Cho’s New Mirror Series Asks You to Contemplate Infinity, NBD

“Even though a mirror is two-dimensional, it feels three-dimensional to me,” explains Detroit-based designer Nina Cho, who has been putting reflective surfaces at the center of her work since her debut collection back in 2015. For her latest exhibition, developed by Colony Consult, Cho created a series of geometric, two- and three-toned mirrors called Maung Maung. “Maung Maung is the Korean word for an obscured sense of depth — when a view is so vast that you lose a sense of where it ends,” says Cho. Cho’s exhibition is the second installment of The Conception Series , a new exhibition series curated by Colony spotlighting emerging American talent. On view at Morris Adjmi Architects in New York through January 24
