For his Inflatables series, Jeff Koons took ordinary store-bought objects such as inflatable rabbits and flowers and displayed them with mirrored tiles. Give small groups of students a set of objects and at least two mirrors. How can students use the mirrors to make the object(s) appear larger? How can they use the mirrors to multiply the objects? Ask students to arrange the objects and mirrors, then sketch the reflection they see in the mirror.
