‚ÄúIn the mirror; I see myself there where I am not; in an unreal; virtual space that opens up behind the surface; I am over there; there where I am not; a sort of shadow that gives my own visibility to myself; that enables me to see myself there where I am absent: such is the utopia of the mirror. (...) The mirror functions as a heterotopia in this respect: it makes this place that I occupy at the moment when I look at myself in the glass at once absolutely real; connected with all the space that surrounds it; and absolutely unreal; since in order to be perceived it has to pass through this virtual point which is over there.‚ÄĚ
