A mirror is an object with at least one polished and therefore reflective surface.
The most familiar type of mirror is the plane mirror, which has a flat surface.
Curved mirrors are also used, to produce magnified or diminished images or focus light
or simply distort the reflected image.

Mirrors are commonly used for personal grooming (in which case the old-fashioned term “looking-glass” can be used), decoration, and architecture.

In this instance – two people are the mirrors, making an attempt at echoing their emotions through visual media. The looking glass of the soul. Also the artists Anders Weberg & Alison Wiliams have never met in real life, only seen each other on line and therefore their emotions
are kind of filtered by the net. More “unreal” than real.
