Diegetic Mirror

The Diegetic Mirror adds a diegetic (narrative) level to the usually purely mimetic (imitating) mirror.

The camera integrated in the mirror captures the visitor and his environment. Using this data, a machine learning algorithm generates a description of what the camera has seen and displays it on the mirror.

The datasets for neural networks are created by human beings with all their biases and errors. Every neural network can therefore be seen as a mirror.
