Lost Mirrors is the first in a series of collaborative works in which Sharp explores the role of ritual, ceremony and myth in todays world. Mythological stories have been told throughout human existence as a way of making sense of the world and our place in it. The same mythological themes reoccur in the spiritual and folk traditions of the past and the major religions of today. Carl Jung describes these universal mythological motifs as projections of the collective unconscious.
These works investigate past, present and future rituals in order to find a place for them in a secular society.
