Self-Centered Mirror is an arrangement of 34 vertical panes of mirror. It has a retro-reflective behavior, and anyone standing in front of this mirror will see themselves reflected on all 34 panes. The mirror is designed to isolate a very narrow field of vision, and seemingly reflects the image of each viewer individually. It physically illustrates the narcissistic gaze that is usually associated with mirrored reflection.
