Making Mirror, Mirror

The making of the Mirror, Mirror installation for the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Baroque exhibition.

The first sketch of the idea by Pete.

Please see the original project post on Mirror, Mirror for more details on the project.

First successful multi-person track.

First successful track with a mask larger than the face itself.

We created a custom drawing tool to allow Pete to generate mask paths for the installation. This is a grab of one of the first paths drawn.

A grab using some of the custom elements that Pete had selected from the V&A archive. It was obvious at this stage that the next step was to add reflected elements, as well as scaling to ensure that the masks generated didn’t get overwhelming in scale.
