The installation includes 64 mirror objects, each controlled by 2 servos for pan and tilt. These objects would orientate towards themselves and when someone appeared in the space, they would pause, then all turn to face the person. They would track a visitor around the room, but move on to someone else if they got bored (based on various scoring) or continue to chat between themselves. The mirrors can be positioned anywhere and any angle, calibrated in a way to always look roughly at the area of a visitors face.
New work by London’s Random International includes almost two hundred identical, small mirrors are arranged in a grid to form a flat, homogenous surface. Hung against the wall, the mirrors are closely spaced and apparently static; but they possess the ability to move in harmony with one another.
