Overview

Brixel Mirror is a 19 foot wide by 6 foot-tall installation made up of 540 Brixels, black on one side and polished aluminum on the other. Brixel Mirror is the first installation built by BREAKFAST to utilize their new Brixels™ technology, which is a digitally controlled system that rotates each “brick” to make them act as pixels. Brixel Mirror can cycle between various content, including “Silhouette” where, when you approach the installation, the Brixels directly in front of you rotate, creating a mirror that matches your silhouette that moves with you giving a one-to-one reflection.

Goals

The goal of Brixel Mirror was to create the first installation to demonstrate how our Brixel technology could combine the ideas of art and a display in a whole new way.

Process

Brixel Mirror was self-funded and developed internally.
