The space of the mirrors | Miguel Ángel Díaz Camacho

The mirrors work as the pupils of a within the walls space, a room outdoor from that they observe us. In occasions there preserve even some recollections of our lives, as the porous and dusty mirrors of the old houses, which seem to examine from the hats and suits to stripes of ours forbears1.
