Said Dokins Creates Illuminated Sculpture in Querétaro : “Refraktur”





Mexican street artist Said Dokins clearly loves towers to create his work upon. And he adores covering them with all sorts of cryptic symbols and stylized letter forms. Now we find him doing a decidedly high-gloss version as inscrutable mirrored kinetic sculpture in the streets for people to study, peer into, contemplate, and pose in front of.

Part of the Querétaro Experimental international public art festival this summer, the artist says his new mirrored pole is called presents Refraktur. As one of the 200 artists across a wide range of disciplines, including music, theatre, dance, performance and sculpture, the muralist is taking on glass, metal, mirrored glass and LEDs to entertain and perhaps puzzle passersby.

“This piece seeks to create an atmosphere that invites the public to reflect on its presence and the environment,” says Dokins “through a scriptural space in the form of a tower that during the day appears as a mirror and during the night is illuminated through the screen hidden within the structure, where a series of words, signs and symbols are in constant movement.”
