“WHOAMI”

 

The act of recognizing one’s own image in a mirror is the hallmark of selfconsciousness, the favoured vantage point of reality.
The experience of recognition is thus the source in the identity of each individual: any disruption which alters these points of view is perceived by the observer as an exception to the ordinary logic and to linear perception of the self.
WHOAMI, using an interactive mirror that preserves memory of visitors, reproduces the confusion created by this experience where the unforeseen bursts on the scene of senses.
The Python application detects the presence of the person through computer vision, capturing the face and memorizing position and movement of it.
The user interacts with the installation approaching it, changing its reflected image in one of the past visitors, becoming himself part of WHOAMI and its future interactions.
