Dual Mirror I

Floor 1 | Mirrors in Mind
James Seawright’s work is composed of 110 mirror tiles arranged into two concave surfaces. The radii of curvature are the same, but the mirrors are oriented in slightly different directions. Stand side by side with a friend: you’re only 1 metre apart, but she’s reflected in one mirror (and can see 55 images of herself), while you’re reflected x55 in the other and cannot see her reflection at all. Stretch out your hand, into the edge of your friend’s image. Ask her to reach towards you – you’ll find a hand waving near the image of your head without her body attached!
