Lake of Shimmer

June 24th, 2009

“Lake of Shimmer” is the title of this installation at the Swarovski stand at Baselworld 2009, the largest watch fair in the world. Tokujin Yoshioka designed a wall, measuring 9 by 8 meters, with 16000 octagon shaped mirrors. A computer can control the angle of each of those mirrors, so it was possible to display simple animations resembling the reflections on a lake.
If you like this one, you might want to have a look at Daniel Rozin’s Mirrors Mirror.

The Tokujin Yoshioka office and I had some different opinions before, but that’s all settled now.
Enjoy watching this video.

    Still, I consider Daniel Rozin’s Wooden Mirror the best of it’s kind.
