Summary: Méroir takes inspiration from Jacque Lacan's concept of méconaissance. Coming from combination of the French words mé-- (equivalent to the prefix "un") and miroir ("mirror"), méroir is an "unmirror" that makes you take a closer look and think twice about what we might take for granted in our day-to-day life.
