Mirrors serve the purpose to see the body. But these mirrors are not your typical mirror that you would use to get dressed or do your makeup. These are interpretations on mirror use and the body.
These interactive mirrors were created by Daniel Rozin, an artist, educator and developer, who focuses on interactive digital art. These mechanical, interactive mirrors were made out of various materials but all have video cameras, motors, computer, and produce soothing sounds as the mirror moves with whoever is standing in front. Clearly these do not do much if you are actually needing a mirror, but they sure look fun to play around with.
In another interpretation of mirrors and the body, Alyson Shotz, a New York based artist, put tiny circular mirrors all over a person and then photographed them in nature. The collection is called ‘Reflective Mimicry’ and was done in 1997. For this one, the mirrors are attached to the person, instead of the person looking at the mirror.
