Mirror Wall / Jeppe Hein

 

The Mirror Wall, 2009, an interactive installation by Danish artist Jeppe Hein. The following description is provided by the artist: When visitors enter the space the mirror starts moving subtly and wavelike. Visitors facing the mirror will be irritated by the vibrating reflection of themselves and their surrounding. This sensation causes not only a vague feeling of dizziness but also a latent distrust of one’s own eyes and spatial perception.

Light sculpture/ mirror designed by Japan-based design firm Nosigner, for the Taro Horiuchi fashion shop.
