“through the looking glass” [2004]

“through the looking glass”


“through the looking glass” defies the conventional wisdom that the world in the mirror is the same world extending in front of the mirror, by enabling you to play a hockey game with your reflection in the mirror. The screen in front of the mirror and the screen in the mirror show different images, and the puck you hit goes into the world of mirror instead of bouncing off the mirror. The user must confront himself, or play two roles, going back and forth between the outside and the inside of the mirror to hit the puck.
