Mirror Angle 30° 60° 120°

Two rectangular mirrors intersect at a 30°, 60° and 120° angle. While a perpendicular viewpoint simply reflects the viewer and the opposite space, an interesting visual phenomenon occurs when the viewer faces the corner angle directly. The right angle causes a duplicate reflection, as both mirrors reflect not only the space but also each other. Their widths become extended, seeming to continue into the adjoining side, thus appearing to the viewer as a mirrored cross rather than a mirrored angle. An interchange of contours, angles and corners gives the viewer an ambiguous sense of space.
