I have absolutely no idea which forum this belongs in... it's just cool!!

Here's the Link To The Video and Article








You can certainly hear Gustav Troger walking from a mile away.

Thing is, you just might not be able to see him even when he gets close.

“I, myself, disappear and actually just people are showing around me. It’s like an empty, animated void, if you want to call it like this,” the Austrian artist says, describing the effect of his mirror suit.

His entire body is covered, even his face, by hundreds of small mirrors.

Troger’s whole goal for creating "Mirror Man" is to have people question reality by looking at him, and seeing themselves instead.

He feels it's a unique way for people to notice the world around them by looking through him.



“It’s sort of testing reality. What is reality about? That’s why all reality really exists in the minds of people and the history of people,” he says.

I am not sure why....but that is really cool. I love living/performance art.

I wonder how the effect would change if the mirrors where to be made smaller, still covering the whole body but just smaller mirrors .25 inch - 1 inch or so. It seems like it would increase the resolution so to speak of the reflected environment.

Right, like some form of pixelation?

Exactly my train of thought.

Then he'd be like the mirror man that came before him, Stanislav Müller.

An all in one would look better!

Would better reflect the environment and probably be less visible.

Since it's literally reflective...
I wonder how hot it gets?

You're right! Thank you, I was trying to figure out why that picture actually seemed familiar. That's exactly what it reminds me of!

First thing that came to my mind was camoflauge it looks exactly like what cloaked enemies look like in video games

Pretty freaky and very cool. My heart would probably sink if I saw him in person.

That is so cool. It looks like a futuristic camo suit or something. He really blends in, in the beach shot, you can barely see him. Makes me wonder what the Feds have, since his suit is just mirrors and it works so well.
