Christian Megert (b. 1936) begins with paintings that combine monochromy and various surface materials. In 1959 he commences work with mirrors as light reflectors. He makes mirrored spaces, mirror- and glass books, and later also works with artificial light as design element. In 1961, he puts his ambition into words: ‘I want to construct a new space, a space without beginning or end, wherein everything lives and is brought to life, a space that is at once quiet and loud, motionless and moving.’
