This is What Happens When You Build a Cube Out of One Way Mirrors

This is one of those art projects that I could probably stare at for hours, losing myself inside it. The design collective Numen for Use created a 3D box of one-way mirrors, which also expands and contracts when inflated. The results are nothing short of awe-inspiring!

This cube is made out of one way mirrors. No matter which way you look at it, you can only see the reflection of other other mirrors inside.

The reflections inside repeat forever, extending into 3D space for infinity.

It’s also designed to be flexible, so that it can be filled with air. As it inflates, the 3D grid distorts with the expansion.

I remember when I was a kid, there way a hallway at the mall with mirrors on both sides. The angle was a little bit off, and as I walked by, I could see myself repeating into infinity, forever.

Imagine if they made this box large enough to step inside! Either way, this is definitely something that makes me say, “Wait, wow!”
