Méroir is not an average mirror. It plays with aspects of life that the we take for granted: reality, time, and the sense of self.
Méroir is a mirror that isn't a mirror. Coming from a combination of the French “mé-” (equivalent to the prefix “un-“) and miroir (“mirror”), méroir is an “unmirror” that makes you take a closer look and think twice about time, reality and your sense of self. Part of our inspiration for this project came from the work of Robert Irwin, whose art plays subtly with the limits of human perception. Méroir's effect is achieved using a two way mirrored acrylic, HD monitor, two hidden cameras, sound, and the video effect software Isadora. The lights around the mirror just burned out today, but the rest of it is working perfectly.
