Black Mir­ror – OSFC
Live and ana­log selfie video dis­tor­tion

The Black Mir­ror is a mod­u­lar sys­tem of ana­log dis­tor­tion effects, pre­sented for the first time as part of the Adobe Remix series at the Adobe Max Cre­ativ­ity Con­fer­ence 2017 in Las Vegas.

For the Open Source Fes­ti­val Con­gress 2018 in Düs­sel­dorf, the Black Mir­ror has been upgraded to an inter­ac­tive video booth: by the use of a spe­cial remote con­trol, the vis­i­tors get the abil­ity to dis­tort not only let­ters and icons, but also their own faces in real­time.

The Black Mirror’s dis­tor­tion effects work com­pletely ana­log: sound waves, oil drops, a flex­i­ble soap water mem­brane or sim­ple shak­ing let the vis­i­tors dis­cover com­pletely new sides of them­selves.
