# Zero Mirror

__The Story __

The Zero mirror is a tribute to Brahmagupta, a sixth century Indian mathematician & astronomer. His contributions to math and science have shaped the modern world. The Zero mirror is a tribute to his work. He was one of the first mathematicians to explore the properties of zero, and the first to record his ideas about it in written form.

__The Design__

The mathematical equation behind this design is Brahmagupta’s equation. This mirror takes from his theory and makes it into a clean geometric form. While most mirrors reflect the world, this one helps us reflect on the concept of zero through Brahmagupta’s equation. By creating a mirror, it also opens the conversation of zero from a mathematical realm to a metaphysical one- the concept of zero serving as bounding horizon for all relationships: we can approach it but never arrive at it.
