His series ArchitorSpace examines architecture and its interior spaces, emphasising the uneasiness one experiences in enclosed public environments. These environments are transitional spaces, junctures between rooms and corridors; indeterminate places designed without a determined use, spaces that exist as zones of non-activity, thus leaving one open to the scrutiny of others. The hallways and corridors are areas that are particularly banal and evoke a feeling of familiarity. These sites within the images architecturally reveal no history, identity or specific functionality, yet have become so common in post-industrial society.
Daniel Mirer’s work is part of Museum and Institution collections; Special Collections of the Library of University of Leiden, Leiden, Netherlands, Southeast Museum of Photography, Dallas Museum of Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Dallas Contemporary Art Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Worcester Art Museum, Fidelity Investments and Ohio State University.
