Anti-Gravity Mirror

This exhibit demonstrates symmetry in mirror reflections. You stand with the edge of a large mirror bisecting your body. To another visitor watching, you still appear whole because of the two-fold symmetry of the human body. The fun starts when you start moving. If you lift your leg off the ground, for instance, the observer will see both legs lift, leaving you, as the performer, without visible means of support.
