Infinitude III, the Digital / Pixel Mirror
c. Michael St.Mark 2015
Introducing Infinitude III, the Digital (Pixel) Mirror. Bringing the virtual world into the physical.
data / context
x100 2″ sq mirrors arranged on a back panel to form a 20″ sq mirror, each square being infinitely adjustable via a universal joint on its reverse centre point of adhesion to the panel so as the whole mirror produces an infinite variety and juxtaposition of its 100 individual physical pixel reflections according to each of its component pixels’ (mirrored squares’) manually-depressed angle of any of its 4 outside edges or corners through the horizontal plane, giving a playful hide and seek-like experience.

Self portrait / Hidden pulse, gif by Atacart ( 2016 ), that he keeps as a retweet & follower-accumulating pinned headline lead-in image on his Twitter timeline. A direct copy of Infinitude III; The Digital Mirror by Michael St.Mark, made up into a simple gif by randomly moving some of the mirrored squares – as is exactly the function of Digital Mirror – and re-photographing it.
( * Still there as of January 2018 – presumably Mr Atacart finds it difficult to come up with a better creation of his own in 2 years to attract traffic and followers on his Twitter feed )
- Update May/June 2017 this gets noticed. Not so flattered when so-called designers like Nick Munro start making money out of someone elses concept and artwork.. Six weeks only after the above post date stamp for Infinitude III, the Digital Mirror, Munro’s identikit ” Hide and Seek mirror” is out of production and on sale at John Lewis.. now at £190
