Look into Infinity


Look through a gap between a pair of mirrors. What do you see?

Show more

Whenever you see something reflected in a mirror, the light has travelled to the mirror and back to your eye, so the object seems to be the total distance the light has travelled away from you. In this exhibit, you see a long corridor of reflections, stretching into the distance. What happens if you swing the mirror walls slightly?
