In 2010 I made a ficus out of gold mylar. Actually it was gold mylar that was laminated on some kind of white plastic/poly sheeting. I’ve been looking high and low for that material again, with no luck at all.

Working with materials is challenging. I feel like many materials I use are often discontinued.

In searching for silver mylar, imagine my surprise to find this:

I love how the plant stands in as an object to demonstrate reflexivity, yet the photo is framed like a portrait.
