Six semicircles of equidistant mirrored lamellae stand opposite each other in an inverted position. The mirrored arcs curve away from a central space created between them. The mirrored surfaces reflect not only the viewers and their surroundings, but also the adjacent mirrors. Physical space is visible in the gap between the vertical lamellae, and is inserted between the mirror images. The multifaceted reflection therefore produces a fragmented view of the space, surrounding the viewer with an unfamiliar and disorienting environment similar to that of a labyrinth.
