Light & Color

Everyone is You and Me

Light coming from a real object cannot be distinguished from light coming from an image. Two people sit on opposite sides of a one-way" mirror. This mirror reflects 1/3 of the light lets 1/3 through to the other side and absorbes the other 1/3. By changing the illumination on either person one is able to combine the two faces into one face with some features of one person and some features of the other person. If each person presses a button only one half of each is lit and you see a "split personality."
