What is a mirror? If the image in the mirror is just a reflection, is it therefore an illusion? And why is up up and down down when left becomes right and right becomes left?

A mirror doesn’t really need a frame, it is intriguing enough in itself. However, the shape of the mirror is important because its perimeter is such a sharp border between reality and reflection. It plays with your perception.

A rounded shape takes the mirror away from the mathematical, machined domain. By folding the lower end of the shape, it becomes a small shelf. The shelf itself and its reflection becomes a smaller version of the entire mirror’s shape. Simple, intriguing.
