Time Scan Mirror is the first of the Software Mirrors to deal with issues of time. This series of software mirrors examines notions of time, scanning, motion and stagnation. In Time Scan Mirror only one vertical line of pixels is scanned and is continuously coppied sideways, the result is a “log” of about 30 seconds of whatever crossed in front of the center of the mirror. This also yields a multi- angled representation of peoples faces.
The 4 mechanical mirrors are made of various materials but share the same behavior and interaction; any person standing in front of one of these pieces is instantly reflected on its surface. The mechanical mirrors all have video cameras, motors and computers on board and produce a soothing sound as the viewer interacts with them.
