Leonardo Da Vinci was an artist, anatomist, architect, scientist, writer, sculptor, philosopher, engineer, inventor and musician. Even if he was perfect in multitasking, ironically, he said, β€˜Every mind divided between many studies confounds and saps itself.’ To deconstruct his words, this work withdraws only one word and inserted the word β€˜multitasking’ in the sentence. It presents the sentence in the form of an eye test chart (lightbox) out of Bia’s own experience on latent strabismus as she thought that the symptoms are similar to the phenomenon modern people are unable to focus on one task and wander around many things. The different mirrors’ angles serve to disperse the text. If a single mirror is used, the given sentence would have been read more readily. However, by making it be read through lots of divided mirrors, the situation that the essence is blurred is maximised.
