Brixel Mirror

2018
Installation

Brixel Mirror is a 18 foot wide by 6 foot-tall installation made up of 540 Brixels, black on one side and mirrored on the other. Brixel Mirror is the first installation built by BREAKFAST to utilize Brixels™.

Brixel Mirror can be controlled from a smartphone to switch between various content and interactive experiences. "Silhouette" is one experience 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. 

When no one is directly in front of the installation, kinetic animations and relevant information can play across the installation with the Brixels rotating to create letters via positive and negative colors and space.

An additional feature of Brixel Mirror is the embedded LEDs that illuminate from the bottom of each Brixel. This creates an entirely different look and experiences for when the sun goes down.
