In sorrow mirrored we are presented with the word "sorrow" made from mirrored glass tube. Mirroring is also formally embedded in the word as it almost presents itself as a palindrome.The two “r’s” in the middle of the word are reflected to face or mirror each other. The panels on which the "r’s" are mounted move up and down covering the "s" and "o" and "o" and "w". Functioning like a rowing machine the wings in their up position cover and erase the word and then return to the closed position. sorrow mirrored references how we are constantly being exposed to other people’s tragedies through media culture throughout our daily lives and recognizes how we absorb other people’s tragedies.
