Fragments is a surface of 200 panels that react to the onlooker, creating new ways of framing one's self-image

While mirrors are for taking a good look at ourselves, there's now a mirror that will see and react to our movements. Fragments is an art piece at London's Random International studio comprised of nearly 200 small mirrors that tilt and pan as the person standing in front of it moves. The interactive mirror takes selfie to a whole new level.

A camera watches passersby and informs the individual mirrors on how to turn as the person moves. When a person stands different in front of the mirror, the panels wrap in such a way to give a more complete look at themselves. According to the project's page, the mirror is also meant to create fragmentation of one's own image and watch it be rebuilt with movement, creating a dialogue between the self and image.
