When the viewer stands in front of the mirrors, inevitably he(/she) at first sees a reflection of himself on the surface. When he shifts his perspective and looks at the mirror in a different angle, he is able to see an image/text behind his own reflection. This secondary layer beneath the surface, suggests a deeper insight that is only obtained by the willingness of the viewer to change perspective and look further. After seeing what is suggested underneath, the viewer re-applies the newly discovered, previously hidden layer of meaning to the original first reflection of himself.

Upon seeing me, she displayed a sickly but violent terror. After all, I was pale, smeared with blood, my clothes askew.
