In a time when we regularly discuss reality as a medium, be it virtual or augmented, we begin to consider the translation of self in digital space.
The Looking Glass is a photo booth installation investigating virtual identity. Inspired by carnival funhouse mirrors and digital presence the installation creates our reflection as our machines see us.
The installation offers realtime advanced manipulation of procedural effects via distortion, color, camera and background, creating unique images formed from our identity and manipulation of the image. We are the source and the curator of our digital identity.
