magic recievers - supernatural links often attributed to things that people do not understand. Mirrors seemto posses a power beyond the natural, a reflection of the truth, and so became a handy repository for many mystical and supernatural ideas. They did seem to be portals to another world at times..
Resolving the Post-Modern dilemna will involve breaking free from the duality of a black and white universe---accepting grays and off-color whites and all shades in between is a more realistic zeitgeist. Then there is the issue of re-enchanting our world (returning to nature). This photo may not specifically be Post-Modern or beyond---but I love thes kind of photos.
