Guest Blogger, Diane Whitmore: Exploratorium Exhibit Developer-
We have two mirror-related artworks by Danny Rozin at the Exploratorium. One is a set of mirrors that reflects you multiple times. The other completely excludes you.

Self-Excluding Mirror at the Exploratorium
Part of my job as an exhibit developer is to notice phenomena that other people might not. I discovered a similar mirror phenomenon in a different configuration at the ice rink that I frequent.
By moving slightly side to side, I can exclude or include myself in these mirrors.
There might not be an exhibit in there, but noticing it, seeing that it's a different angle configuration than the ones we have makes me curious.
Discoveries like this give me a sense of ownership. This is mine to explore through sharing, with drawings, ray diagrams or as a mock up.
