Through refractive tricks of physics, objects close to the mirror (designed by Oliver Sidet) do not seem nearer than they appear but rather more and more indistinct. As people approach the unassuming and unadorned rectangular surface, they expect to get an ever-clearer image of themselves but instead slowly dissipate into nothingness.
