What is a reflection? How do reflections change the ways we see ourselves? Are androids more than reflections of ourselves?  

A glyph is a symbol - yet the relation to the meaning is changeable. What happens when symbol meanings are lost from us, when we lose control of information? Each letter within the roman and katakana alphabets are mirrored at 12 angles (intervals of 30 degrees) to create novel characters, illustrating how familiar symbols can quickly become foreign through the process of reflection.
