How does our state of mind affect our self-awareness? Mind Mirror is an artistic meditation on such questions. A person’s shifting brain waves are used to modulate their virtual image. The more one is able to remain calm and as well as reach an attentive state, the clearer their portrait becomes. Herein lies the feedback loop; the user is able to visually observe the output and thus alter it accordingly.
