These mirrored art installations concentrates on the fact that such exhibits are often highly a subjective and personal experience for most. People who go into museums and galleries with an open mind are often treated to insights that are both intended and unintended by the artist him- or herself.

In this particular case, Jeppe Hein, an artist born in Copahagen, Denmark, and based in Berlin, Germany, puts his mirrored art installations entirely in the hands of his audience. Although, in a few cases he nudges them into down a slightly dark path with neon light statements reading, "It's not you it's me" and "Are you really here". In other cases, the mirrored art installations involve suspended circles that hide and reveal in order to mess with people's perceptions and perspectives.
