Vestige by Rob Mulholland is an art installation that is at once eerie and beautiful; the eerie aspect comes from its similarity with the movie 'Predator.' The use of mirror Perspex to reflect the forest surroundings in a distorted, camouflaged way has been dubbed 'the Predator effect' since the alien creatures in the film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger used a similar technology.
Instead of evoking ideas about aliens and invasions, Vestige by Rob Mulholland explores the relationship between individuals as well as between humans and nature. The United Kingdom-based artist has installed these reflecting figures in forests around Alloa, Loch Ard and the David Marshall Lodge in Scotland. He says, "It alters reality, one moment you see them and the next moment they blend in. There's an ambiguity to it--it doesn't answer all the questions."
