Spiegel im Spiegel is a site-specific intervention in the form of soundwalk specifically created for the Memorial Park Dotrščina in Zagreb. The park area is the place of the biggest ethnic execution (seven thousand people) during the WWII in one Croatian city. The soundtrack, lasting 45 minutes, is composed as a direct intimate dialogue with the visitor, muted and isolated from external stimuli. In this way it strengthens the concentration and sensitivity to the memorial area and reinforces the experience. The dramaturgy was created in collaboration with Ivana Sajko, awarded as best Croatian dramaturges.

The walk ends in the temporarily constructed Forest Hall (the Valley of graves). The Visual intervention in the valley includes rectangular mirrors, most with the dimensions of trees body, positioned on the visitor’s eye level. Viewing the forest the visitor observes "cuts" on the horizon, in the trees "cutaway" is reflected the forest landscape and in some of them the observer has a silent encounter with himself.
