Anti-Gravity Mirror

This exhibit demonstrates symmetry in mirror reflections. A visitor stands with the edge of a large mirror bisecting his body. To another visitor watching, the person still looks whole because of the two-fold symmetry of the human body. The fun starts when the first person starts moving. If that person lifts their leg off the ground, for instance, the observer will see both legs lift, leaving the performer without visible means of support.
