The students of the School of Design in Bratislava made an installation for the visitors of BADW 2018. Its main elements is a mirror cubusthat provides a human with a refuge and hideout keeping the looks from the outside world away. A visitor will be exposed to the only sight – his/her own, but multiplied in through infinite mirroring. A paradoxical situation occurs here: a visitor is exposed to his/her own sight at him/herself from an endless number of perspectives; he/she finds him/herselflonely, but also in the crowd of his/herself. Isolated from the surroundings, he/she can realise his/her uniqueness, explore his/her own identity, reproduce and spread his/her picture in an endless virtual space or let him/herself be engulfed by the crowd of his/her own undistinguishable copies.
