换位思考 / Empathy


In order to change our thoughts, we’d better change the perspective of viewing ourselves.The images of ourselves we see in the mirror are usually different from those in our friends’ eyes. The mirror is designed with a touch screen. On the screen there are two touch buttons ---- one stands for us, the other for a friend. When we touch the friend button, we’ll trigger the sensor. Then just as the wind blows the still surface of a lake, the surface of the mirror will ripple. When it recovers, the image we see in the mirror will be the one in our friends’ eyes.
