With an engineering degree under his belt, Jonty Hurwitz has learnt how to combine his two passions: science and art. Each one of his mirror anamorphoses “is a study on the physics of how we perceive space, and is the stroke of over 1 billion calculations and algorithms.” [1] Hurwitz makes an abstract object and projects it onto a mirror so that we can visually recognize it; in reality, that defined object doesn’t physically exist.
