“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.
