Trippy Photos Shot From Inside a Box Made of Mirrors

These photos might look like they were computer generated, but they’re actually unmodified photographs. Ron Brinkmann took 6 mirror tiles and made a box with them with the help of some duct tape. He then placed a camera inside and triggered shots using the timer.

Here’s what the box looks like (the sixth tile is used as the lid):

You can find more of these photos in this Flickr set. Someone should take this idea to the next level by making a mirror box that’s big enough for a photographer to fit inside.

    Swarovski has built a diamond-shaped room with all surfaces covered in mirror – so you can feel what it’s like to be “inside of a diamond” – at their museum “Kristallwelten” near Innsbruck, Austria (http://kristallwelten.swarovski.com/Content.Node/homepage.php). Looks about like this: http://bkatrin.fotki.com/2008/mentoring-summit/img0713.html / http://bkatrin.fotki.com/2008/mentoring-summit/img0701.html .

    In the Alive Museum in Singapore, there’s a mirror room with disco lights. Trippy.
