The Mirrors Mirror is a mechanical sculpture and custom lighting environment that organizes 768 square reflective pixels along a picture plane. In this piece an overall rectangular composition shows a silhouette of each viewer, while each individual square chrome unit tilts to deflect the person’s literal reflection. Investigating order versus chaos, and the inner workings human visual perception, the Mirrors Mirror also explores the borderlines between digital and analog worlds, or virtual and physical experience.
