Description: The Action Researcher/Performer collected poems written on the subject matter of 'mirrors' by famous authors such as Charles Baudelaire, Alphonse de Lamartine, Gilles Corrozet and Paul Claudel.  Using a non-permanent marker pen, she then transcribed these texts directly onto mirror surfaces around the city of Paris.  Passers-by stopped to read the words reflected and as a consequence started conversations with one another about their own experience of the city.
