Narciso

Narciso 2016
Interactive Installation
Matheus da Rocha Montanari

Narciso (2016) is an interactive installation consisting of a webcam and a touchscreen where the video of a river is played. When the interactor touches the screen, he sees some frames captured by the webcam that results in the image of his face reflected on the water. 

Revisiting Narciso and McLuhan, the work questions the role of technology in the amputation of the self. Are we becoming only reflections of our selfies?
