This installation was created for the Gogbot festival as part of the study Creative Technology at the University of Twente.
Our installation is a mirror, but not a regular one. When you look into the mirror you donít see yourself, but your reflection is different. Your reflection will be how we think humans will look like when they move to mars and adapt to their environment.
At first people will be attracted by the fact that their reflection is different. They will be amazed by the fact that the expressions of the reflection are equal to theirs. They might start wondering why the reflection looks this way. We wanted to give the visitors a simple interaction. A mirror is the most simple interaction we could think of. You donít have to press any buttons or complete any tasks. People are used to seeing their reflection, and when your reflection is different from what you expect it is very funny.
