Mirror Image is a brilliant project by Eindhoven grad Lotte van Wulfften Palthe where, based on the visuals created by a kaleidoscope, real objects are mirrored and reflected in three-dimensional space. The objects, mostly plastic jugs, retain their function (for the most part) even through the deformation of their shape beyond recognizability.
Kaleidoscope...An object mirrored by reflection; will it deform, will it be differently interpreted or even illegible? Just like a face upside down that becomes almost unrecognizable. Or mirrored writings that become a new language. I asked myself whether a product could become a dissimilar product, with a differnt function, through reflection. Do objects—like words—have a 'backwards'?
A fantastic concept and exploration, all around.
