Spieglein

Installation, WIP since 2015

How often a day do you look into a mirror?

Spieglein is a mirror that makes its user look ugly.
The project is still work in progress and I am following two different approaches. The first is an "augmented mirror" which combines a two way mirror, a screen, a webcam and software to overlay the reflection with an uglified version of the user.
The second approach does not use anything digital at all but is simply a real mirror with a three dimensional structured surface, manufactured precisely to distort the reflection.

I am quite curious which approach will win out and will post the result on this site.
