What is more true: our reflection in a classic mirror or one with a concave or convex surface, distorting the image according to its curves? We learn to trust this mundane instrument that we come across with in the bedroom, in the bathroom, in a shop window, in a store, as if it gave back a faithful image of our face and body, but if we change this established relationship, if we shape it into curvilinear shapes, noting how peculiar the result can become, we are faced with a question: the mirror is more deceiving when it reflects us ipsis verbis or when it distorts us, as a metaphor for our complexity?
