Setting up a makeshift room in the middle of public space that contained only a mirror, table and chair; random participants were told to sit in this dimly lit room and stare at their own reflections. Giving them time to question their own image and become engrossed at staring into themselves. Purposefully retaining a low lit environment individuals were able to experience the “Strange Face In The Mirror Illusion” to which they would experience their face changing shape or morphing into another person, creature or simply something unrecognisable. After 5 minutes a flash and camera would unexpectedly trigger, dis-enabling the subjects to act out conventional behavior that is often adopted when being photographed.
