Hat’s eye view

hat_mirror

This hat has a small mirror woven into it. What does the inclusion of the mirror say about the wearer of the hat – particularly in light of the mirror’s concealed position? Think of the number of reflective surfaces that surround your daily life. If you have ever want to see yourself in a mirror, it isn’t too tricky to find a plate glass wall, car window, or even turn on the user-facing camera on your cellphone or laptop.  Now consider a place without any of those things, such as rural Myanmar. The desire to know how you look is pretty much universal.
