Study For A Mirror by Hannes Koch

Posted in Installation, Photography, Technology by RADDblog on November 15, 2009


There is currently a presentation on the work of rAndom international, a London-based art and design collective, hosted by designtransfer of the UDK Berlin. One of the project that Hannes Koch presented was “Study For A Mirror” which is actually the next generation of their other piece called “A Study Of Three Mirrors“.

‘Study For A Mirror’ is a ‘temporary light painting’. Face recognition technology detects when the viewer is standing in front of the work and then directly paints the onlookers image in light. The Image then gradually fades. Evectively a mirror this work offers the ultimate immediate, yet ephemeral, contemporary portrait.

Chris O’Shea wrote the software with openFrameworksopenCV.
