Magic Mirrors 

A Participatory Video Installation (2002)

Everyone, especially children, are fascinated by watching their own video image. Magic Mirrors is a video installation requiring audience participation to create large projectionsof human forms bending, twisting, and flying through space. This celibratory work couldbe described as a ývideo fun house,ţ where participants view large projections of theirown images transformed in extraordinary ways using real-time digital video processing techniques.

This work is ideally designed for a crowd of people coming and going since it engages a large audience in two ways. Audience members who participate in creating the projection move and interact together socially to produce a composite image. The large screen insures that audience members who do not participate directly can enjoy the spectacle of watching those who do participate, even from a great distance or in passing.
