Situated at the heart of Rice University's campus, "Mirror," a piece of two 148-by-96-inch stainless-steel figures by Jaume Plensa, a Barcelona-born artist and sculptor, is Rice's newest permanent art addition.
The two figures face each other, as if engaging in conversation, elevated on a platform with lights that illuminate the installation at night. The frontal face area of the sculptures has an opening, allowing people to step inside and experience the art in a new perspective.

This installation, similar to Plensa's other works, is a cast-iron sculpture with large relief written text in many different languages, joined together to create a see-through effect that almost makes the sculpture melt into its background.
