idMirror

idmirror-cute

idMirror is a critical device art project which tries to question how the usage of technology influences our perception of identity. As we share bits and pieces of information about ourselves on the internet through tweets, facebook posts, snapchats and others, we are constructing a virtual identity. Is this virtual identity just a reflection of ourselves, is it part of ourselves or might it even be a completely different person?

This project uses an Android tablet running an OpenGL application, and a Raspberry Pi running a Processing application. Multiple tablets can be used at the same time in the installation.

idMirror was demonstrated at Ars Electronica 2015 and at the CHI 2016 Arts Exhibition.
