Biometric Mirror by Lucy McRae

Design + Technology + Visual Arts




Biometric Mirror is an immersive installation that blends the act of casually glancing at one's reflection with modern algorithmic perspectives on facial perfection.


Photography: Jesse Marlow

The artwork explores the accuracy and flaws of artificial intelligence and the 'uncanny valley' of algorithmic perfection and its potential black mirror outcomes.

This AI mirror analyses an individual’s character traits based solely on their face – to investigate the way that people respond to AI analysis. The mirror compares its onlooker to a database of faces that have been assessed on 14 characteristics, before issuing them a statement that summarises their ‘attractiveness’ and their emotional state. In theory, the algorithm is correct, but it’s likely the information isn’t – because how can it be if it’s based on subjective information?
