All the Universe is Full of the Lives of Perfect Creatures – Karolina Sobecka

Karolina Sobecka creates a mirror where an animal head is overlaid upon it, so that when a person moves his or her head, the animal head somewhat mimics their movements and their expressions. When interacting with the mirror, people become more animalistic to become more of their animal counterpart in the mirror. The mirror offers a traditional glimpse into virtual reality as it’s function is to reflect the real world, and having the animal head is to transform the person into an animal – which we are inherently. This project was created by face tracker, ofxFactTracker, openFrameworks, Unity3d, and Blender3D. I enjoy that the artist plays with the traditional and current form of virtual reality.
