An evolution of the 19th Century Pepper’s Ghost, Through the Looking Glass includes various levels of depth and reflections to create an effect of infinite wormhole, as in a (worm)Hall of mirrors, similar to Alice's fall down the rabbit hole. The piece presents a further exploration of reflection on different surfaces.

Other historical references include A. Kircher's Catoptrophic Lamps or T. Wilfred's Clavilux, silent light organs.
