Dissociation's gold leaf-covered mirror both obscures the reflection of the viewer, offering a profound distance between the self and the image, and provides an unfamiliar reflection of the self to its audience, an image that is to be studied through the weight of gold leaf's history. This exclusion of the self brings the audience into questioning the consumption of their image through the context of the material. Dissociation's gold leaf, a material that has been used to imply the divinity present in many art pieces throughout history, juxtaposes the knowledge of the contemporary self with the trajectory of the past.
