Viewing Room Main Site

A huge mirror construction is installed above the visitors' heads, consisting of two long, rectangular mirrors connected at right angles. The mirrored object rotates slowly around its axis, occupying the entire length, width and diagonals of the space. Thus, the viewer can see the space reflected from various perspectives on the mirrored surfaces. The two mirrors also produce a double reflection, creating the effect that the mirrored images of people and objects are rotating with the mirrors themselves. Although the viewer remains standing, their reflection turns upside down and then back again. This illusion induces not only a vague feeling of dizziness but also a latent distrust of one's own eyes and spatial perception. As the mirrors display a different picture of the location, the viewer questions his or her position in the room.
