Digital Ghosts Mirror
This mirror interface complements our generative portrait series. It reflects the viewer’s face into the digital realm, breaking expectations in the interaction with an everyday object.

(in real time)
Disguised as a bathroom mirror in the washing room, the installation catches viewers by surprise.
It records fragments of faces over time and scrambles them in a variety of ways – creating the visitors personal digital ghost.
Fragmented reflections are based on face-recognition and accompanied by a real-time sound synthesis.
The first show at the Direktorenhaus Berlin as part of the Analog Mensch Digital exhibition by Shutterstock, 2014.
Shuttersock invited ten german design studios (and by surprise also us) to create experimental works about the intersection of the digital, the analog and men.
2015 we were invited by Felix Beck and the Digital_ia Festival to Stettin in Poland.
We presented Digital Ghosts (among other projects) right here at Marienstraße during the Platine Festival in Cologne Ehrenfeld, 2016.
Platine exhibits works in the field between arty games and highly interactive art.
