Mirror Mirror On The Floor

Here’s something: an (unbranded) installation, down at the Royal Opera House, called ‘Audience’.

The film above shows how the relatively simple motion tracking technology works, in which the mirrors chat amonst themselves until something catches their collective eye:

“When members of the audience occupy the space, the mirrors inquisitively follow someone that they find interesting. Having chosen their subject, they all synchronise and turn their heads towards them. Suddenly that person can see their reflection in all of the mirrors. They will watch this person until they become disinterested, then either seek out another subject or return to their private chatter…”

The question is: Is Chris O’Shea‘s project, conceived by rAndom International, a comment on individual and collective behaviour or just a mesmerising interactive that makes you want to jump in and take part?
