Summary:
An oblong box with glass panes for sides which are painted and silvered to produce a checkerboard mirror effect. On the front pane, instead of black squares, the artist has left clear squares through which one can look inside of the box and see a complex play of patterns and reflections. The four mirrored squares in the centre each have two corners cut off diagonally.
