‘Layered me’ mirror by mischer’traxler

Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler, who form Studio mischer‘traxler were inspired by the idea that faces and personalities are not flat but multilayered.


For ‘Layered me’ mirror, several sheets of mirrors are introduced into one object. Due to the distance and scale of the single mirroring layers the reflections become disfigured and form an assemblage of various images.


‘Layered -me’ consists of four two-way mirrors and one sandblasted or coloured sheet of glass placed in an oak base. Since the two-way mirrors always let some light through, the reflections are lighter and seem to fade out, where less layers are on top of each other.
