Mirror Snaps is a mirror "photobooth" that generates animated gifs and immediately posts them to a website for people to download and share.
This project is being developed as my final for Live Web, and would be a playful interactive addition to the winter show! My interest in designing the interaction around a mirror rather than a screen or camera is to hopefully capture a more expressive or unaffected image, and offer a seamless and enjoyable picture-taking experience. We all love to look at ourselves in the mirror – why not keep a record of this?
I am particularly interested in how the images will begin to tell a story over time, and how the piece will be utilized in a public space.
For the show, I would really love a space in the front near the elevator or in the hallway!
