The Mirror Tower is an interactive art installation. Here, vision is the catalyst. By using reflective surfaces facing different directions, the viewers can experience a rich visual sensation of the winter landscape at The Beaches that blurs the physical boundaries between sky and ground, land and water, ego and environment.
The installation is composed of a total of 512 identical reflective modules (8 x 16 x 4 sides) inserted into timber frames. Each module is consist of a wood block with one 600 oblique surface and a mirror glued to the oblique surface. The module can then be inserted into the timber frame in 4 different ways: up, down, left and right. As a result, different modules will face different directions and reflect specific views creating a mix view of the beach. The installation will become a popular photo spot for social media (#winterstation #mirrortower).
After the event, the installation can be relocated to conduct optical research and develop more design iterations. Or, each reflective module can be recollected and give to donators as a gift.
