“A beautiful woman should break her mirror early”

  Baltasar Gracian

Mirrors tickle our imagination, they offer another self. They create—or appear to create—an alternative world where everything is the other way around, where even space and time may not be what they seem. The ancient Greeks and Romans polished disks of metal, glass mirrors with a thin coating of tin mixed with mercury date from the Middle Ages. Since around 1840 silver is used instead. Today we mirror digital documents with fluid designs as cronjobs to computer servers at the other side of the world on an hourly basis.
