Reflectego is an interactive spatial installation that uses parametric design methods to rethink conventional static structures. The project was exhibited widely with MetaBody, amongst other places, at the PRADO National Museum, Madrid.
The design derives from a kaleidoscopic composition of faceted mirrors, aimed specifically at distorting perception. The user literally becomes the physical object inside a kaleidoscope in which he sees his image scattered and recomposed as a result of his pattern of movement. The structure consists of a suspended faceted mirror-surface with embedded proximity sensors, which hovers and physically changes the inclination and directions of its facets in real-time, based on the people it senses beneath. The user is thus visually displaced, as his perceptual affinity of seeing him/herself in a mirrored surface is suddenly challenged.
