The museum also has an infinity mirror room! You can see yourself an infinite amount of times! How cool!?

Tic-Tac-Toe: Mirror Illusion
Have you ever played a game on a mirror?
This mirror illusion gives you the full image of tic-tac-toe, but only presents half sized pieces!
To view the tic-tac-toe mirror illusion, click here!
When the half-pieces are placed onto the mirror, it reflects using symmetry, thus creating the illusion that the piece is whole.
A standard mirror creates a double reflection, so for the image to be accurately reflected, you need to use a first surface mirror.
A first surface mirror is a mirror that has been flattened and stretched to where it has no gap between the object and its reflection.
Rust Mirror is an interactive art piece that uses steel tiles, and moves with you.
The tiles move up and down when the person does. So, it outlines the person like a shadow.
But, since it is made out of steel tiles, it sounds like it is raining as the pieces move.
This piece of art was created by Daniel Rozin. It can be found in the Bitforms Gallery
