Real Mirror

WHAT if the medium fails to disappear by using a non-normative way of generating perception, by taking advantage of the error/glitch derived by the medium itself?

Real Mirror is an interactive object that transforms the viewer's self-image into new, spatial and physical forms of perception. The constructed virtual space is based on a VR system that is accessible through smart glasses. The interface between body and virtual space - a navigation sphere - provides a virtual 360° view of the environs and reacts on spectator’s movements of the sphere. In these rooms the user can navigate and lose him/herself at the same time. An interplay between two influencing dynamics: the changing environment, triggered by one's own movement in space.

LITTO / Daniela Weiss
*1984, Vienna

In Litto's virtual world, rules are undefined, rites are reversed and perception is twisted, places participate as players, identities become blurred and time glitches away.

Her art research deals with the intersections between the physical, virtual and imaginative worlds. She uses a multi-disciplinary approach, utilizing analogue skills, programming and 3d art to create immersive experiences.
