‘Mirrors” aims to re-interpret the meaning of the word ‘pixel’.  Rather than taking the form of a tight grid, typical  for  the flat, orderly display of information, each individual ‘pixel’ has been given the distinct freedom and ability to move around in a three dimensional space, at its own discretion.
Evolving from the ‘Audience’ installation, the  hundreds of animated mirrors move collectively  to create a subtle, continuous flow of movement. The installation spans two floors over six meters, in the atrium of London’s Bruton Street. ‘Mirrors’, completed in April 2009, was rAndom’s first permanent installation in the UK.
