surveillance mirrors

Surveillance Mirrors were created explicitly for the exhibition the “living room” at Galerie Mario Mauroner, the installation is derived from a reflection on how spaces and places became almost life-like, observing entities by electronically interacting and observing their surroundings. Surveillance Mirrors turn the exhibition piece into the observer and the visitor into the observee thus becoming a part of this living room and the exhibition.

Two electronic devices behind transparent mirrors act as the interface through which the living room communicates with us. The input mirror notices the new visitor while the output mirror communicates with him and turns him into the exhibition piece.
