It’s all down to mathematics, not magic, but that does not diminish the
deceptive effect of Germans Ermi?s’ Isometric Mirrors. By framing oval
mirrors with a curved sliver of wood, they mimic holes in the wall; windows
onto a parallel world. And so, Ermi?s challenges us to question our
perception of what is real. “I was really interested in optical illusions
and wanted to create a simple interior object with an element of the
unexpected,” he says. Positioned together, his ensemble of three mirrors
enhances the sense of confusion, as entire sections of the wall appear to
shift and tilt.
The dimensions of the mirrors:
Large: 150 x 106 x 4 cm
Medium: 113 x 80 x 4 cm
Small: 75 x 53 x 4 cm
The mirrors can be easily rotated.
