Walking through this kaleidoscopic mirror tunnel would be one big mind trip. Easily comparable to stepping into a life-size kaleidoscope toy, it is full of crystal-like prisms that reflect not only light but the people who enter it to create a unique experience every time.

Dubbed Wink Space, the mirror tunnel was created as part of the Art in a Container International Competition for which 2013 KOBE Biennale artists and designers were asked to participate. Designers Masakazu Shirane and Saya Miyazaki constructed the mirror tunnel, which is located in a shipping container. Shirane says, "We wanted to create the world’s first zipper architecture. In other words, this polyhedron is completely connected by zippers. And in order to facilitate even more radical change some of the surfaces open and close like windows."
