Reflections
Mirrors Mirror by Daniel Rozin (Clip)
Date: April 29, 2009
Running Time: 00:01:18

Mirrors Mirror creates the viewers' image by directing 768 small mirror tiles in a way that reflects different portions of their image. The piece is made of 24 columns of "pixels" that form a concaved curved surface that is aimed at the viewer. Brighter pixels reflect the upper body of the viewer and the wall behind him and dark ones are aimed lower. So the environment is important as it affects the reflection. The viewing experience is quite private as the resulting image can be seen only by the reflected person. This piece also includes an algorithmic animation feature that is triggered every time a person leaves the piece.
This collection of individual programs tells a wide range of stories, reflecting the diverse interests of the Exploratorium community.
