Extraordinary Mirror Illusions

Copper Hand by Jonty Hurwitz

With an engineering degree under his belt, Jonty Hurwitz has learnt how to combine his two passions: science and art. “Each one of his pieces is a study on the physics of how we perceive space, and is the stroke of over 1 billion calculations and algorithms.” [1] Hurwitz makes an abstract object and projects it onto a mirror so that we can recognize it, but in reality that object doesn’t physically exist. His work challenges our perception, and it is a fine example of mirror anamorphosis.
