Young visitors to the Science and Industry Museum taking part in a drawing activity.

Mirror Pillar

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2018.

Take a peek into the mirror universe. Look at any of these artworks directly and you’ll see a complete mess, but glance through the Mirror Pillar, and all will be suddenly revealed. As the mirror bends, bounces and contorts light, you’ll see the artworks as they’re meant to be. Gawp, marvel, then make your own twisted creation in the reflective world of mirror art. Test some anamorphic art activities that make clever use of perspective and angles, draw pieces of large images and check out some of the finished images completed by guest artists.
