Discover Your True Reflection!
Having read this far, Princess Mary sighed and glanced into the mirror which stood on her right. It reflected a weak, ungraceful figure and thin face. Her eyes, always sad, now looked with particular hopelessness at her reflection in the glass. "She flatters me," thought the princess, turning away and continuing to read. But Julie did not flatter her friend; the princess' eyes -- large, deep and luminous (it seemed as if at times there radiated from them shafts of warm light) -- were so beautiful that very often in spite of the plainness of her face they gave her an attraction more powerful than that of beauty. But the princess never saw the beautiful expression of her own eyes -- the look they had when she was not thinking of herself. As with everyone, her face assumed a forced unnatural expression as soon as she looked in a glass.

True Mirrors/Hair Part Theory was on NPR's RadioLab!NPR's Radiolab and Jad Abumrad interviewed founder John Walter on his theories about Hair Parts and True Mirrors as part of the show about Symmetry. Along with cohost Robert Krulwich, they put together a fascinating show called "Desperatly Seeking Symmetry", which explores our natural desire for symmetry, and yet finding that its pretty hard to find out there. The Hair Part Theory, and mirror images figured in a big section and was a lot of fun to listen to. In fact, they took the show on the road, playing to full houses in NYC, Los Angeles and Seattle.
The show was recently broadcast in early April and may rebroadcast in your area over the next month. However, if you want to hear it now, they are podcasting it at the following address: Desperately Seeking Symmetry (full show)

New Exhibit at the Science Museum in Norway!
The True Mirror is part of an Exhibit on "Science and Truth" at the The Museum of Natural History and Archaeology. (Vitenskapsmuseet) at the The Museum of Natural History and Archaeology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway. In front of a full length True Mirror, the exhibit challenges viewers with this comment: "Looking in a mirror is a complicated process that involves light reflections, memory, perception, measuring distance and a conception of you. Still it is the easiest thing in the world, and we know exactly how we look. Because what you see must be true?"
